Verily, this Beowulf is a warrior for the Lord of Mankind! It must be true, as the story says, that righteous Jesus has sent Beowulf and his warriors upon their holy quest to cleanse the world of the evil Grendel. It seems clear that, Christ, having pity for the poor souls dwelling in fear of Grendel’s violence, sought to ensure their safety by enlisting the support of the Beowulf, a warrior blessed by God with many gifts.
Would that I could have joined them, in fulfilling the work of our lord. But I am but an old knight, and it has been many a year since I fought, spear in hand. Even with my sight restored to what is was in my youth, through the blood of Christ, I fear I would not qualify for such a illustrious party as sailed with Beowulf.
But Beowulf was strong, and brave, and needed no such help. I praise his valiant battle with the creature Grendel. The Lord was with him, and lent him strength. All is possible with God on one’s side. For it was not through wyrd, but through the will of God that mighty Beowulf was victorious. Truly the noble hero is a tribute to the Geats, for he has done both his father on Earth, Ecgtheow, and his father in heaven proud.
