      Hails Jah
          Maegen and Megin are the OE, ON  words for might strength, power. Beowulf line 196 states se waes moncynnes maegen strengo. The ON sagas refer to Thores megin. A. Eadgifu's line 49 and cwaeth thaet Crist sylf mid eallum heofonlicum megne thane arwygde on ecnesse the thas gife aefre awende oththe gewanude. The Sources are Fr. Klaeber' translation of Beowulf, and Sweet's Second Anglo-Saxon Reader in Prose and Verse by Dorothy Whitelock. What would the Gothic equivalent to these words be and what sources would be quoted as proof.
