1 Gótt vas í gamma,
es vér glaðir drukkum,
ok glaðr grams sonr
gekk meðal bekkja.
Vasa þar gamans vant
at gamansdrykkju;
þegn gladdi þegn
þarlands sem hvar.
It was good in the hut when we drank, gladdened, and the glad-hearted son of the ruler [= Sigurðr] went between the benches. There was no lack of cheer at the cheerful drinking; retainer gladdened retainer, there as everywhere.
