Hail to Thee, All-Father
Guardian at the Gate.
I come before Thee
armed with oak and steel.
I come bearing sweet perfumes,
Bread and wine for sacrifice.
Wisdom is yours, Sky-Father,
Strength is yours, Thunderer,
Splendor is yours, Bolt-Thrower.
We have called Thee by many names:
Odin, Indra, Zeus;
You are the All-Father:
Hunter, Protector, Lord.
I invoke Thee, All-Father,
That I might share in Thy Wisdom;
I invoke Thee, All-Father,
That I might partake of Thy Strength;
I invoke Thee, All-Father,
That I might witness Thy Splendor.
Thee, Thee, I invoke, All-Father;
I am Become Thee.
