I think another area in which the language we use
plays a key role is in poetic composition...yeh,
duh -right ;)
so too, do we connect to the very roots of our own language, and have the opportunity to see the origin of words, their usage and the like first-hand... when I hear songs sung in the elder form it simply 'connects' in a deep way which I've never felt with a similar verse composed in modern English... certainly, its better to compose in ME than not compose at all, but for those with the aptitude, patience and drive to learn, becoming familiar enough with an elder tongue (such as OHG) is a spiritually rewarding and empowering experience...
just some further thoughts...
