Þú ert margföldust mildi
mjúklætis hásæti
grundin guðdóms anda
góð og Jésús móðir.
Brjóst eilífrar ástar,
óflekkuð, gaftu drekka,
full af fögnuð öllum,
frú mín, syni þínum.

Þú ert margföldust mildi, {hásæti mjúklætis}, góð grundin anda guðdóms, og {móðir Jésús}. Gaftu brjóst eilífrar ástar syni þínum drekka, óflekkuð frú mín, full af öllum fögnuð.

You are the most manifold mercy, {the high-seat of humility} [= Mary], virtuous land of the spirit of the Godhead and {mother of Jesus} [= Mary]. You gave the breast of eternal love to your son to drink, my unblemished lady, full of all joy.
