And evere honóured for his worthynesse.
Worthinesse: strength; prowess; also, a feat of arms; honor, dignity; nobility; spiritual worth.
Honour: fame, good repute, nobleness of character and manners.
Again, our night is of high spiritual worth (blessed wherever he goes), honorable, noble, dignified, strong and graceful. He is well known and honored for these qualities.
Also note the assonance of long closed ‘o’s: “And evere honóured for his worthynesse.” When read out loud, you really hear and feel that ah! ah! ah!, like you’re suddenly awestricken by this knight’s chivalrousness. It’s as if in response to the skeptical eh’s of the previous line.
