Verse Indeterminate Saxon


Verba mea auribus percipe, domine; intellege clamorem meum.
Word þu min onfoh,         wuldres ealdor,
and mid earum gehyr,         ece drihten.
Intende uoci orationis mææ, rex meus et deus meus.
Ongyt mine clypunga         cuðum gereorde,
beheald min gebed         holdum mode;

5

þu eart min cyning         and eac ece god.
Quoniam ad te orabo: Domine, mane exaudies uocem meam.
Forðon ic to ðe,         ece drihten,
soðum gebidde,         and ðu symble gehyr
morgena gehwylce         mine stefne.
Mane adstabo tibi et uidebo, quoniam nos deus uolens iniquitatem tu es.
Ic þe æt stande         ær on morgen

10

and ðe sylfne geseo;         forðon ic to soðe wat
þæt ðu unriht ne wilt         ænig, drihten.
