Bearne forðfarenum,     bearm céleð,
fæder wearð nán.     Fǽrlicum hægle
yrða búgað,     ís byð to fýre
efengelíc bealwe,     anbid brýseð.
Wíf to widuwe     wyrð gesceaftes,
hire lufe láf.     Laguflód hréoseð,
clyppeð folcwer,     foldan drenceð.
Ac hréoh on hrædinge     hús ðéah fylleð,
mágas héapað     ymbe módorheorðe.
Béamas fram bǽle     bærnað swearte,
ðonne weaxað wæstmas     wæcnende on æscum.
Hnesce heofonas     mæg heard storm,
wǽden weorðan.     And wæl gnorn mæg
getilian frið     for feohtwérigum ðéode.
