Jöfurr giefi upphaf
óðar, er skóp þjóð,
ella verðr orðfall
aldar; er hans traust vald.
Æsta vil eg yðr, Krist
(einn stýrðu gramr hreinn
sólar) um satt mál
(salar, hvað eg kveða skal).

 

May the {prince of men}, [= God] who created people, provide the beginning of the poem, else there will be a lack of words; his power is firm. I want to ask you, Christ, for true speech; {pure king {of the sun’s hall}}, [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] govern alone what I shall compose.
