Ítarligr er öllum betri
eingla grundar blessaðr þeingill;
lýðr er allur leiftra stillis
lofi dýrligstu skyldr að ofra.
Öllum hlutum er æðri og sælli
eilífligastr skepnu deilir;
honum sie dýrð á himni og jörðu;
hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

{Ítarligr, blessaðr þeingill {grundar eingla}} er betri öllum; allur lýðr er skyldr að ofra dýrligstu lofi {stillis leiftra}. {Eilífligastr deilir skepnu} er æðri og sælli öllum hlutum; dýrð sie honum á himni og jörðu; hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

{The glorious, blessed lord {of the land of angels}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] is better than everyone; all people are obliged to lift up the most precious praise {of the prince of lightnings} [= God]. {The most eternal ordainer of creation} [= God] is more distinguished and blessed than all things; glory be to him in heaven and on earth; he is higher than everything else.
