To wenden with hymR.2.122:
Though RF opt for the apparently singular form (a reading endorsed by Schmidt), beta agrees
with Ax in reading hem, which seems more appropriate
to the plural referents named in previous lines; the P family of C also
attests this reading, but the X family agrees with alpha. However, MED, s.v
"hem," documents hym as an available but rare spelling, especially in the
fifteenth century, for the objective case of the third-person plural pronoun. So the
difference noted above may be only a clutter of scribal / authorial accidentals. to
