Ljóss giefr röðla ræsir
rausn, magnar gieð bragna;
dáðir fremr dróttins móðir
dygg, þar er aldri skyggir.
Lýtr öll veröld ítri
yfirþjóðkonungs móður;
verð er drottning dýrðar
dæmd til efri sæmdar.

{Ljóss ræsir röðla} giefr rausn, magnar gieð bragna; {dygg móðir dróttins} fremr dáðir, þar er skyggir aldri. Öll veröld lýtr {ítri móður yfirþjóðkonungs}; drottning dýrðar er dæmd verð til efri sæmdar.

{The bright king of heavenly bodies} [= God (= Christ)] gives splendour, strengthens the mind of men; {the faithful mother of the Lord} [= Mary] promotes [good] deeds, where shadow never falls. The whole world bows down before {the glorious mother of the supreme king <= God>} [= Mary]; the queen of glory is adjudged worthy of highest honour.
