Text heard on Sample:
Then I prayed to the cross with glad heart,
For now I have hope of life
Through that rood of victory.
I hope for the time when it will bring me
With joy where the company of the Lord
Are placed at a banquet.

"The time is come
When men will worship me from far and wide."

I may thereafter dwell in glory,
and with the blessed ones partake of delight.

Anglo-Saxon anon, trans. Dorothy de Navarro
