Hel, great goddess, daughter of Loki,
She who guards the spirits of the dead,
Our friend [Name] has come to you now.
As [Name] kneels before you, Hel,
Know how much s/he was loved in this life,
And how many s/he loved in return
Before s/he crossed over.
S/he was an honorable soul,
A soaring spirit,
A brave warrior.
Watch over her/him, Hel, as s/he crosses the bridge,
From this life to the next.
And welcome her/him with glory,
That s/he may live on forever in our hearts
-Prayer to Hel, Norse Goddess of the Underworld (via bragison)
