Sanndyggra, mátt, seggja
snjallr huggari, kallask
harðla traust ins hæsta
heiðgjöf konungs jöfra.
Eldr ert elsku mildrar
eilífr brunnr ok heilagr
hinn er, andar sára
einsmurning, vit hreinsar.

Snjallr huggari sanndyggra seggja, mátt kallask harðla traust heiðgjöf {ins hæsta konungs jöfra}. Ert eldr mildrar elsku, eilífr ok heilagr brunnr, hinn er hreinsar vit, einsmurning sára andar.

Wise comforter of truly faithful men, you can be called the very trusty honour-gift {of the highest king of kings} [= God]. You are the fire of gracious love, the everlasting and holy spring, which purifies the conscience, the unique unction of wounds of the soul.
