Hēr is mīn spell,

Ġē willaþ leornian...Iċ hopie...

Ġif þīn ēaran sind ġeopenod....

Sēo eorþ is ūre mōdor,

Þā cōfan and grafu sind þā wamba hire.

Wē libbaþ on Middanġēarde,
Siððan, wē dīġaþ and gāþ tō helle,

Hē is forġieten, forġieten.

ġemunaþ mīn spell, ġē...

Modern English translation

The earth is our mother,
she brings life to us,
we are here with her.

The caves(chamber) and caves are the wombs of her.
Life comes from the wombs.

We life in middle-yard
Afterwards, we die and go to Hel
Then, we reborn into new life.

We live on Middle-yard,
Afterwards, we die and go to hel,
Then, we are reborn into new life,

The honour of man does not die,
people speak about him well,
he and his live and,
he will come back to again to Middle-yard

The dishonourable man dies,
People talk about him bad,
He and his elf dies,
he is forgotten, forgotten,

Down the caves I go,
to Hel to be reborn,
naked, I go.
Still/yet, I don't have a name,
I heard the story of my forefather,

Now, darkness I see,

Like my forefather,
I will become him,
Then, I be immortal,

You are there,
You walk (step) on earth,
Do you think of her?

Remember my message, you...

Remember your forefathers and Earth
