Month for Loki: Ninth

LOKI’S GIFTS

by Mordant Carnival

Hail Loki, honour to Loki

To Sif you gave her golden hair;
You have given me renewal.

Honour to the Son of Laufey.

To Thor you gave Mjolnir;
You have given me strength in the face of my enemies.

Hail Loki, honour to Loki

To Frey you gave Skinbladnir;
You have borne me over mighty gulfs.

Honour to the Son of Laufey.

To Frey you gave Gullinbursti;
You have been a radiance for me through the darkest times

Hail Loki, honour to Loki.

To Odin you gave Draupnir;
You have given me wealth uncounted.

Honour to the Son of Laufey.

To Odin you gave Gungnir;
You have given me victory.

Hail Loki, honour to Loki.

Honour to the fair One,
Honour to the cunning One,
Honour to the generous One,
Hail the Son of Laufey.
