They extolled his heroic nature and exploits
and gave thanks for his greatness; which was the proper
     thing,
for a man should praise a prince whom he holds dear
and cherish his memory when that moment comes
when he has to be convoyed from his bodily home.
 
 
Heaney, Seamus. Beowulf : A New Verse Translation. New York: Norton, 2000.

            ll. 3173-3177.
