Er æ minnilig eftirdæmi
yfirvaldanda himins og landa;
hneigði nú sinn háls og beygði
hverjum þræl, er lysti að berja,
fátalaðr með lítillæti,
lágraustaðr með ásjón fagri,
svá bjóðandi sínum dauða
sína önd fyrir nauðsyn mína.

Eftirdæmi {yfirvaldanda himins og landa} er æ minnilig; hneigði nú háls sinn og beygði hverjum þræl, er lysti að berja, fátalaðr með lítillæti, lágraustaðr með fagri ásjón, svá bjóðandi önd sína sínum dauða fyrir nauðsyn mína.

The example {of the supreme ruler of heaven and lands} [= God (= Christ)] is forever memorable; he now bent his neck and bowed before every slave who desired to strike, saying little with humility, softly spoken with a fair face, thus offering his soul in his death on account of my need.
