Ik gihorta dat seggen,
ðat sih urhettun ænon muotin,
Hiltibrant enti Haðubrant untar heriun tuem.
sunufatarungo: iro saro rihtun,

garutun sê iro guðhamun, gurtun sih iro suert ana,
helidos, ubar hringa do sie to dero hiltiu ritun.
Hiltibrant gimahalta, Heribrantes sunu, her uuas heroro man,
ferahes frotoro; her fragen gistuont
fohem uuortum, hwer sin fater wari

fireo in folche,... «eddo hwelihhes cnuosles du sis.
ibu du mi enan sages, ik mi de odre uuet,
chind in chunincriche. chud ist mi al irmindeot.»
Hadubrant gimahalta, Hiltibrantes sunu:

garutun sê iro guðhamun, gurtun sih iro suert ana,
helidos, ubar hringa do sie to dero hiltiu ritun.
Hiltibrant gimahalta, Heribrantes sunu, her uuas heroro man,
ferahes frotoro; her fragen gistuont
fohem uuortum, hwer sin fater wari

«dat sagetun mi usere liuti,
alte anti frote, dea érhina warun,
dat Hiltibrant hætti min fater: ih heittu Hadubrant.
forn her ostar giweit, floh her Otachres nid,
hina miti Theotrihhe enti sinero degano filu.
her furlaet in lante luttila sitten
prut in bure barn unwahsan,
arbeo laosa. her raet ostar hina.
des sid Detrihhe darba gistuontun
fateres mines: dat uuas so friuntlaos man:

her was Otachre ummet tirri,
degano dechisto miti Deotrichhe.
her was eo folches at ente, imo was eo fehta ti leop:
chud was her... chonnem mannum.
ni waniu ih iu lib habbe»...

«wettu irmingot», quad Hiltibrant obana ab heuane,
dat du neo dana halt mit sus sippan man
dinc ni gileitos»...
want her do ar arme wuntane bauga,
cheisuringu gitan, so imo se der chuning gap,

Huneo truhtin: «dat ih dir it nu bi huldi gibu.»
Hadubrant gimahalta, Hiltibrantes sunu:
«mit geru scal man geba infahan,
ort widar orte. ...
du bist dir, alter Hun, ummet spaher,

her was Otachre ummet tirri,
degano dechisto miti Deotrichhe.
her was eo folches at ente, imo was eo fehta ti leop:
chud was her... chonnem mannum.
ni waniu ih iu lib habbe»...

Huneo truhtin: «dat ih dir it nu bi huldi gibu.»
Hadubrant gimahalta, Hiltibrantes sunu:
«mit geru scal man geba infahan,
ort widar orte. ...
du bist dir, alter Hun, ummet spaher,
