Guðs æsti menn mest
móður, hun dugi þjóð,
(fyrir ljóða líkn kær)
liðs (hjálpar mier), við.
Jésús veitir ágætr
alt giengi því ávalt;
heilög er snót sæl
sú; það er vís raun.

 

Men should ask {God’s mother} [= Mary] most for aid, that she will lend support to people; the beloved one helps me because of the comfort of poems. Magnificent Jesus therefore always grants all success; that is a certain fact; that blessed lady is holy.

notes: The point of this st. is that Mary acts as an intercessor with Christ for sinful humankind. For that reason (því, l. 6) he always grants people success.
