Mind must be the greater, as our strength diminishes.
Mod sceal þe mare, þe ure mægen lytlað.
Now let us praise the Guardian of the Kingdom of Heaven
the might of the Creator and the thought of his mind,
the work of the glorious Father, how He, the eternal Lord
established the beginning of every wonder.
For the sons of men, He, the Holy Creator first made heaven as a roof, then the Keeper of mankind, the eternal Lord God Almighty afterwards made the middle world the earth, for men.
--(Cædmon, Hymn, St Petersburg Bede Circa 650)
