A song to Ostara

As part of our coming gifting to Ostara, I want to incorporate singing. Our voices are divine gifts capable of incredible goodness. I started to write down a song in Swedish, but quickly realized that I wanted to be able share, and invite all members to consider singing to Ostara this March.


It is my hope that this spring of 2024, more of our Folk will sing together.


The songs are sung to the melody of ''Hail to the Princess Aurora'' from Disney's ''Sleeping Beauty'', 1959.



English Version:


''This is a song 

To a Goddess so bright 

Her shining light that warms the earth 

It brings to us both hope and mirth 


Hail to the Goddess, Ostara! 

The Folk now gathers to worship 

Hail winters end! 

Hail to the dawn! 

Hail to the Goddess, Ostara! 


May we be joyful 

Darkness is brought low 

Glory to you now, Ostara! 

Hail Ostara! 

Hail Ostara! 


Hear our bright song 

Young, old, as one Folk 

Victory is near now, Ostara! 

Hail winters end! 

Hail to the dawn! 

Hail to the Goddess, Ostara!''



Swedish Version:


''Solen i öst  

Skåda strålande ljus  

Vårens vackra ljud må eka nu 

När mörkret snart har nått sitt slut 


Hell dig, du vackra Ostara! 

Folket nu samlas i vördnad  

Hell vinterns slut! 

Hell Gryningen! 

Hell dig, du vackra Ostara! 


Må hon ge välstånd  

Hör nu vår lovsång 

Fröjdas åt våren, Ostara! 

Hell Ostara! 

Hell Ostara! 


Må hon ge välstånd  

Hör nu vår lovsång 

Segern den nalkas, Ostara! 

Hell vinterns slut! 

Hell Gryningen! 

Hell dig, du vackra Ostara!''
