Efne hu glædlic bið     and god swylce,
þætte broður on an     begen hicgen,
þær hig ænne sculan     eard weardian.
Swa unguentum mæg     æðele wyrtcynn
5heafde healdan     hrore stence,
mid þy Aaron his beard     oftast smyrede.
Seo niðer astah     on his reafæs fnæd
swa æþele deaw     on Hermone,
se ofer Sionbeorge     sneome astigeð.
10Forþon her bebead     halig drihten
lifes bletsunga     lange to feore
of þisson nu     awa to worulde.
