Fantasy Art

Lo! There do I see my father.Lo! There do I see my mother....

Heathen troth.

This 'Viking prayer' is loosely based on the Arabian traveller Fahdlan's account of the visions of a thrall girl who was to become a blood sacrifice in her master's funeral rites. Its imagery does follow northern germanic heathen beliefs,and it is being used by Wodenists once again in modern times:

"Lo there do I see my father, Lo there do I see my mother, and my sisters, and my brothers. Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning! Lo, they do call to me. They bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla! Where the brave may live forever!"
