Tungu tígið meingi
Taddéum fái * gladdan;
var hann með vald og æru
vegligr í guðs reglu.
Í samkundu sendi
sanna ást til manna
postulinn prýdda listum;
plagaz með dýrðir fagrar.
Frómi hier fólk alt inni
fagrt Taddéus minni.

Fái tígið meingi Taddéum * gladdan tungu; hann var með vald og æru vegligr í guðs reglu. Sendi postulinn til manna í samkundu sanna ást prýdda listum; plagaz með fagrar dýrðir. Frómi alt fólk hier inni fagrt minni Taddéus.

Let the distinguished multitude gladden Thaddaeus with their tongue; he was with might and honour magnificent in God’s rule. May the Apostle send to people at our feast true love adorned with virtues; he devotes himself to fair glories. Let all the people herein celebrate a fair memorial toast for Thaddaeus.
