Hail to the Ancient Spirits

Author: 
Varana Tappo
(Transcribed from the oral tradition by Varana Tappo, Imperial Scribe serving the Longhouse Emperors.)
 
Hail Hircine, Lord of the Hunt
Master of wood and hill
All things that live must chase or flee
In death alone fall still
 
Hail Namira, Spirit Queen
Skein-weaver, silent midwife
Each beginning must have its end
Dark mother of death and life
 
Hail to the ancient spirits
Teachers, testers, weal and woe
Hard lessons, but needful too 
For this world is full of foes
 
Hail Molag Bal, the Prince of Pain
Brutal master, lord of troubles
Giver of strength to slay and strive
For men are meant to struggle
 
Hail to the ancient spirits
Teachers, testers, weal and woe
Hard lessons, but needful too 
For this world is full of foes
 
Hail to the ancient spirits
