‘Haltu, sem hefir mælt,
hvert orð, meðan lífs ert,
hirðir’, kvað happ-Njörðr,
‘hringa, við dróttning.
Betri mun þier vera vitr
— víst hyggjum það — Krist
— ástin hennar má mest —
móðir en hvert fljóð.’

‘Haltu hvert orð, sem hefir mælt við dróttning, meðan ert lífs, {hirðir hringa}’, kvað {happ-Njörðr}. ‘{Vitr móðir Krist} mun vera þier betri en hvert fljóð; ástin hennar má mest; hyggjum það víst.’

‘Keep every word that you have said to the queen while you are alive, {keeper of rings} [MAN]’ said {the luck-Njörðr <god>} [MAN]. ‘{The wise mother of Christ} [= Mary] will be kinder towards you than any woman; her love may achieve the most; we think that for certain.’
