A month for Freyr: day 7

Salutation of the Bread

Behold the bread, the gift of the Lord Provider!
The fields have grown it,
the harvest gathered it,
the mill grinded it.
Behold the bread, the work of Byggvir and Beyla!
Hands have worked it,
warmth baked it,
honey blessed it.
Here is the sacrifice,
here is the nurturing sacrifice!
Behold the bread, the gift of the Golden God!
May it nurture us with His blessing,
warm and bright.
May we give it to others as it is given to us,
generously and with joy.
