I Wed to Thee, My Ethelland
This is an Anglish translation of the song "I Vow to Thee My Country".
I wed to thee, my ethelland, all earthly things above,
Fullfledged and whole and flawless, the thewing of my love;
The love that asks no fraining, the love that stands the fand,
That lays upon the weeved, the dearest and beyond;
The love that never falters, the love sunk to the root
The love that makes unfazed the greatest of all bloot.
And there's another ethelland, I've heard of long ago,
Most dear to hem that love her, most great to hem that know;
We may not rime her gouthheres, we may not see her king;
Her stronghold is a trowfast heart, her pride is in tholing;
And soul by soul with soothing whist her shining meres of grith,
And her ways are ways of milklitheness, and all her paths are frith.
