Gief þú Andréas yndi
oss er hiekkt á krossi,
svá að frumtígnar fagnað
fái menn í hóp þenna.
Sier til æstrar æru
almáttigr guð valdi
þig með þýðu fagri;
þitt vald tapaz oss aldri.
Signi hier guð sjálfr inni
sankte Andréas minni.

Andréas, er hiekkt á krossi, gief þú oss yndi, svá að menn fái í þenna hóp fagnað frumtígnar. Almáttigr guð valdi þig sier til æstrar æru með fagri þýðu; þitt vald tapaz oss aldri. Guð sjálfr signi hier inni minni sankte Andréas.

Andrew, who hung upon a cross, grant us joy, so that people may receive into this company the delight of supreme glory. Almighty God chose you for himself for the highest honour with fair gentleness; your might will never be lost from us. May God himself bless herein a memorial toast for Saint Andrew.
