Sigdrifa's Prayer

I've been working with Sigdrifa's Prayer the last couple of days... and from all that work, unexpectedly a melody popped into my head. From that melody... came a version of the prayer put to an acapella song.

For anyone interested, here it is: Sigdrifa's Prayer MP3. You may listen to it and share it with others. Just keep in mind my singing isn't perfect, but I think it's decent enough. I just ask since it is my melody, and my own simplified version of the prayer that no one make any version of it to profit from. If others would like to take the melody and run with it, knock yourselves out. :)

Hail to the Day
Hail His Sons
Hail Night, and her daughter
Gaze on us
with loving eyes
and bring us victory

Hail to the Gods
and the Goddesses
Hail, the generous earth
Grant us wisdom
and eloquent speech
and bring us victory.

For those unfamiliar with Sigdrifa's Prayer it is the only written, non-Christianized prayer that remains in the lore. it is a microcosm of the macrocosm of our religion. Galina Krasskova takes this poem and analyzes it in a way that I think everyone can find useful.
