Can someone please help translate Maren Margrethe Christiandatters birth record?

My 3 times great grandmother was Maren Margrethe Christiansdatter. Based on census and confirmation records for her the record at Aalborg-Kaer-Ajstrup-Churchbooks 1760-1819- Ajstrup,     https://www.danishfamilysearch.com/sogn118/churchbook/source129741/opslag18163241

should be her birth record. It's on the top right side. I can't understand what all the information is. Her confirmation shows her parents as Christian Nielsen and Karen Poulsdatter, but other researchers also show her father as Christian Drejers? Any help translating the record would be appreciated. Thank you. Betsy Johnson

Parents Christian Drejer and Wife Karen Povelsdatter in Thandal (Tanddal) a daughter Maren Magrethe.

"Drejer" is his working title. Their working titles were often used/written instead of their correct surnames in the old church books.

Thank you so much!!!  I thought maybe the Drejer was something to do with working, but wasn't sure. I really appreciate the help!
