The Paris Psalter: Psalm 99


Verse Indeterminate Saxon


Nu ge mycle gefean      mihtigum drihtne
eall þeos eorðe      elne hyre,
and blisse gode      bealde þeowie.
Gangað on ansyne      ealle bliðe;

5

witað wislice      þæt he is wealdend god;
he us geworhte      and we his syndon.
We his folc syndan      and his fæle sceap,
ða he on his edisce      ealle afedde;
gað nu on his doru,      god andettað,

10

and hine weorðiað      on wictunum
mid lofsangum      lustum myclum.
Heriað naman drihtnes,      forþon he is niðum swæs;
is þin milde mod      ofer manna bearn.
