Now we shall herry the heaven-rike's ward,
the meter's mights and his mood-thank,
the work of the glory-father, as he of everyone's wonder,
eche drighten, the Ur installed.
Erst he shaped for earth's bairns
heaven as a roof, holy shaper;
then the middle-yard, mankin's ward,
eche drighten, teened afterwards,
a fold for men, lord almighty.
