To Tyr

Hail to one-armed Tyr, just one, noble one.
Hail Tyr, whose oldest tales remain untold;
hail Tyr, whose deepest roots remain undug.
A friend to the wolf you once were, O Tyr;
when called to serve both honor and need,
you chose the path of pain and loss, your hand
was taken–your word you kept. Tyr, who we
call on for justice, whose gifts are given
with an even hand, who knows which man
bears guilt and which is honest. Hail to Tyr!

To Tyr

Hail to Tyr, bravest of gods, guardian of the word,
keeper of honor, builder of the best of men,
upholder of the common good, of home and kin,
you give all that is needed, your thought not of self
but of all who rely on your wise decisions.
Tyr, maintainer of what is right, of what is best,
of what keeps those within safe and free from fear,
severe one, looking always toward the truly just,
only with hearts clean and clear may we call on you,
for those who seek your justice will gain your judgment.
Tyr, ancient one, worthy one, held throughout the worlds
in highest regard, mindful one, careful one: Hail Tyr!
