Enn mun kross dýrð kynnaz
— kemr ótti þá — dróttins
fyr hnigstöfum hjörva
hljóms at efsta dómi.
Meiðr skal hverr ór hauðri
hringmóts til alþingis
fremðarráðs á fæðis
fund hvatliga skunda.

Dýrð dróttins kross mun enn kynnaz fyr {hnigstöfum {hljóms hjörva}} at efsta dómi; ótti kemr þá. {Hverr meiðr {hringmóts}} skal skunda hvatliga ór hauðri til alþingis á fund {fæðis fremðarráðs}.

The glory of the Lord’s Cross will yet be made known to {bowing staves {of swords’ din}} [BATTLE > WARRIORS] at the Last Judgement; fear will come then. {Each tree {of the sword-meeting}} [BATTLE > WARRIOR] shall hasten quickly from out of the ground to the Althing to meet {the nourisher of propitious counsel} [= God (= Christ)].
