Heilagt skutu þeir hold -
saklaust blóð - var - síðar - miklu
…ði slegið af
Jésús Kristur - lofðung - ljósan
laðar til - sín - úr - þessi pínu;
Játmundi tiez Einglands kindar
elska sönn með guði og mönnum.

Þeir skutu heilagt hold ... saklaust blóð var miklu síðar ... slegið af ... Jésús Kristur laðar til sín ljósan lofðung úr þessi pínu; sönn elska kindar Einglands tiez Játmundi með guði og mönnum.

They shot the holy body ... innocent blood was much later ... beaten by ... Jesus Christ invites to him the shining king from this torment; true love of the offspring of England is shown to Edmund with God and men.

Notes: [4] …ði: This should possibly be read ...di; Kock (Skald) supplies [sver]ði. — [8] mönnum (m. dat. pl.) ‘men’: Finnur Jónsson (Skj B) suggests that the word here may mean ‘other holy men’.
