Hier mátti heyra
hitnað elskuvitni,
það er sannindin sýndi
sönn fyrir guði og mönnum.
Þá mun bjarga beimum
blíð Máría tíðast,
mest í meinum læstir
menn er þurfa hennar.

 

Here one now could hear the heated testimony of love, which revealed the real truth before God and men. Gentle Mary will most often save people, when men, locked in misery, need her the most.
