Byskup* eftir bænir feskar
beiðir jarl til dráps að leiða;
höggið náði hann að þiggja
og hæstum sig gaf drottni kæstum.
Jartegnir, sem jafnan birtaz,
andi guðs á váru landi
unnið hefir fyr ástvin þenna
ótal manns til heilsubótar.

Jarl beiðir að leiða byskup* til dráps eftir feskar bænir; hann náði að þiggja höggið og gaf sig hæstum kæstum drottni. Guðs andi hefir unnið jartegnir, sem jafnan birtaz á váru landi fyr ástvin þenna til heilsubótar ótal manns.

The earl demands that the bishop be led to death after his beautiful prayers; he accepted the blow and gave himself to the highest dearest Lord. God’s spirit has worked miracles, which still are revealed in our country by means of this dear friend for the healing of a countless number of people.
