Mjöllnir, Hammer of Thor

Lightning and thunder at his command
He is the God of storms
Unbridled power in his hand
Thor is the son of Odin
The champion of the Gods
Of Asgard
In his hand is Mjöllnir
A hammer unlike any other
His enemies cringe in regard
To its power unleashed in throwing
Thor is able without subtlety
To answer any question
To solve any issue
Greater than the finest sword
More powerful than a holy word
Mjöllnir is his weapon
His symbol of power
His holy sigil and ward
And Thor is just
Though able
To be violent

“Mjöllnir would be able to strike as firmly as he wanted,
whatever his aim, and the hammer would never fail, and
if he threw it at something, it would never miss and never
fly so far from his hand that it would not find its way
back, and when he wanted, it would be so small that it
could be carried inside his tunic.”
