Verse Indeterminate Saxon


Eripe me de inimicis meis, deus meus, et ab insurgentibus in me libera me.
Ahrede me, halig god,         hefiges niðes
feonda minra,         þe me feohtað to;
alys me fram laðum         þe me lungre on
risan willað,         nymþe þu me ræd gife.

5

Eripe me de operantibus iniquitatem, et de uiris sanguinum salua me.
Genere me fram niðe         nahtfremmendra
þe her unrihtes         ealle wyrceað,
and me wið blodhreowes weres         bealuwe gehæle.
