Lord of the Sea Shanty (Hail Njörð!)


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð! Njörðr, lord of the sea;

Yo-Ho! Hail Njörðr! Grant us prosperity.


Down by the shore – in Nóatún lives;

a prince of Wanes, who wisdom gives.

Fair-winds our folk – on voyages wide;

you bless us by, and take our side.


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð! Njörðr, lord of the sea;

Yo-Ho! Hail Njörðr! Grant us prosperity.


A temple we share – now sacred the ground,

a gift for gift, we are bound.

Reward noble deeds – to grow our wealth;

to heal our Folk, restore our health.


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð! Njörðr, lord of the sea;

Yo-Ho! Hail Njörðr! Grant us prosperity.


At Njörðshof we join – together in grith;

the feasting table, feeds our Frith.

Fair-winds our folk – on voyages wide;

you bless us by, and take our side.


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð! Njörðr, lord of the sea;

Yo-Ho! Hail Njörðr! Grant us prosperity.


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð!


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð!


Yo-Ho! Hail Njörð!


*sing-a-long at Njörðshof for Freyfaxi
