Oftar vil eg yðarn kraft
inna — það er vili minn —
— vita skulu víf kát —
víða í bragsmíð,
ef landa (líf) stund
ljós veitir gramr oss
máttugr (eða málsgnótt
mín tjár sonar þín).

Eg vil inna oftar yðarn kraft víða í bragsmíð — það er vili minn; kát víf skulu vita —, ef {máttugr gramr landa} veitir oss stund, eða ljós málsgnótt mín tjár líf sonar þín.

I want to tell more often of your power, far and wide, in a work of poetry — that is my will; cheerful women shall know —, if {the mighty king of lands} [= God] grants us [me] time, or my clear eloquence relates the life of your son.
