Verse 38, in the original:
 
Ich fühle wie entzaubert
Das Geisteskind im Seelenschoss;
Es hat in Herzenshelligkeit
Gezeugt das heil'ge Weltenwort
Der Hoffnung Himmelsfrucht,
Die jubelnd wächst in Weltenfernen
Aus meines Wesens Gottesgrund.

Owen Barfield's free rendering:

I seem, from trance now free,
nursed by a soul the Spirit-Child to see,
the fruit of heaven-ward hope
in cloudless heart by holy Word begot,
waxing, triumphing, world-filling,
my Essence and my God's from whence I spring.

Vocabulary and notes toward completion:
felin "I feel"
ve "like" (similar to German <wie>)

i "the"
Fëahína "Spirit-child"
mi "in the" 
órëmóna "soul-womb" [or bosom/surface = súma?]
harya- "have"
Endacalimessë = Herzenshelligkeit "heart-brightness"
onta- "beget"
i airë "the holy"

i estel "the hope"
Menelyávë = Himmelsfrucht "heaven-fruit"
