What would have been lost if Caedmon simply repeated the name God
2- What would have been lost if Caedmon, instead of using a variety of expressions for God, had simply repeated the name God?
Now we must praise . . . God,
God’s might . . . and his mind plans,
the work of God, . . . when he of wonders every one,
God, . . . the beginning established.
He first created . . . for men’s sons
heaven as a roof, . . . God;
then middle-earth . . . God,
God, . . . afterwards made–
for men earth, . . . God.
