Meira veiti oss ör*
ágæt*, en eg beðið fá,
fyrða, sú er fremst er,
fullting dróttning,
því að ljóða lofsmíð
ljóssi — það er skylt oss —
vanda skal eg vita grund
vazta, sem eg kann bazt.

{Ágæt*, ör*, dróttning fyrða}, sú er fremst er, veiti oss meira fullting, en eg fá beðið, því að eg skal vanda lofsmíð ljóða {ljóssi grund {vita vazta}}, sem bazt eg kann; það er oss skylt.

May the {splendid, generous queen of men} [= Mary], who is the most outstanding, grant us [me] more help than I can ask for, because I will carefully make the praise-work of poetry {for the bright land {of the beacon of the fishing-grounds}} [GOLD > WOMAN] as best I can; that is our [my] duty.
