To be said upon arising:
Hail to Thee, Oh Sunna,
Who charges across the vault of heaven
In Your gleaming chariot
At the breaking of the dawn.
Hail to Thee and to Arvakr and Alsviðr:
Early Charger and Gleaming Whiteness,
Fleet-footed steeds of Thee, Mighty Sol,
Who stands in splendor at the reins.
Hail unto Thee from the Abodes of Night, Oh Goddess.
To be said at noon:
Hail unto Thee Who art Sunna Triumphant,
Who art in Thy beauty and splendor
Even as Thou rideth across the heavens
At the mid-point of day.
Hail to Thee, Oh Goddess, Who stands in majesty
At the helm of Thy chariot
Charting the course of the day.
Hail to Thee from the Abodes of Morning, Oh Goddess.
To be said at dusk:
