The Old English Genesis 1-12

Us is riht micel ðæt we rodera weard,
wereda wuldorcining, wordum herigen,
modum lufien! He is mægna sped,
heafod ealra heahgesceafta,
frea ælmihtig. Næs him fruma æfre,
or geworden, ne nu ende cymþ
ecean drihtnes, ac he bið a rice
ofer heofenstolas. Heagum þrymmum
soðfæst and swiðfeorm sweglbosmas heold,
þa wæron gesette wide and side
þurh geweald godes wuldres bearnum,
gasta weardum.

For us, it is the Great Truth, 
that we praise 
in the Words 
And that we Love 
the Practice 
of the Celestial Guardian, 
the Tribe's Glory-King.

He is the Great Wealth,
our Chief, the Great Creator,
the Lord All-Powerful.

No Origin was made for Him.
No End comes to Him,
the Lord of Eternity.
And over the Thrones of the Sky,
He is always in Power.
In the Exalted Power,
with Truth and with Force,
He holds the Sky's Chest,
Made from His Strength
For his Shining Offspring,
The Protectors of a Ghost.
