To Thor

Hail to Thor, red-bearded son of Odin!
We welcome you, we ask your blessing.
Slayer of giants, the foes of Asgard,
friend of the men and women of Midgard,
upholder of the order of the world,
wielder of the thunderbolt, bearer
of matchless Mjollnir, master of the warm
spring rains that bring the deep-sunk seeds to life,
master of the lightning. Hail to Thor!

To Thor

Hail to red Thor, champion of Asgard,
wielder of Mjolnir, slayer of giants,
defender against the foes of order.
For bringing the rains, for warding the worlds,
for preserving the bounds, we thank you.
Thor, friend of man, defender of travelers,
son of crafty Odin and life-giving Jord,
husband of Sif of the golden hair,
father of those who will endure the end,
we honor you and all your deeds. Hail Thor!

To Thor

Hail to Thor, defender of the great gods,
defender of men, warder of borders,
warder of the home. Master of lightning,
guide of storms, we call on you to keep us safe.
Friend Thor, husband of golden-haired Sif,
father of children strong and fair, Modi
and Magni and beautiful Trude,
travel companion of crafty Loki,
master of Thrudheim, opposer of etins,
wielder of irresistible Mjollnir,
with gauntlets of iron you prepare yourself,
with belt of might you gird yourself for battle.
Many tales tell of your feats of strength,
your courage, your wit, your aid to those in need.
Many tales tell of your constant struggle
to keep safe the walls of shining Asgard.
Red-bearded Thor, stalwart one, enduring one,
matchless champion of frail humanity,
we thank you for your protection. Hail Thor!

To Thor

Hail to Thor, red-bearded warder, wielder of sky-fire,
oak-splitter, thunderer, stout holder of Mjollnir.
Friend Thor, trusted protector of men and women,
of those who journey far from home among strangers,
guardian of Asgard and Midgard both, we call to you
to keep us safe, to watch over our children,
to support our own best efforts and lend your strength
where our own may fail. Thor, keeper of the border,
of the line between those within and those without;
ever wise in the world’s ways, tireless traveler
through lands fair and foul, of friend and foe alike;
seeker of the direct path, the sure road. Hail Thor!

To Thor

Hail Thor, constant defender of man!
We welcome you, we ask your blessing.
Strong-armed one, red-bearded storm-bringer,
we wait for winter’s snow and sleet
to end, for your life-giving rains to come,
for the earth to return your gift
with her own. Thor, husband of fair Sif,
you keep us safe, you nourish our lands,
in you our faith is firm. Hail to Thor!

To Thor

Hail to red Thor, strong-armed defender of Midgard,
great-hearted friend of men, guardian of travelers,
bold wielder of Mjollnir, sender of wild spring storms.
Thor, son of the deep earth, son of far-seeing Odin,
ever-watchful guardian, foe of earth-rending chaos,
we welcome the dark skies, the blackness streaked with light,
the hard rains, the soft green life that follows.
Thor, red-beard, in you our faith is well-founded,
your gifts of strength and protection we hold most dear,
your clear sight, your good sense,
your sure aim, your straight talk,
all these we know, all these we prize, all these we seek
in our own lives. Constant and candid, true and trusty
Hail earth’s safe-keeper!
Hail the rain-bringer!
Hail Thor!

To Thor

Thor I hail now, Mjollnir’s master,
strong-armed husband of golden Sif,
son of Earth, son too of Odin.
Good friend Thor, helper of mankind,
rains you bring us, and then ripe fields.
I praise you now, great god of thunder:
bless our efforts, ward us from harm.
