Ok völdum her, hölda,
h*ugar skóg, frömuðr, nógu,
regns hátunnu rennir
ranns, aldini faldið,
því er illlífis æfa
andvígr hiti grandar
— fremd er í gipt — grimdar
greypr élreki steypir.

Ok, {frömuðr hölda}, {rennir {ranns {hátunnu regns}}}, faldið {skóg h*ugar} völdum her nógu aldini, því er andvígr hiti illlífis æfa grandar {greypr élreki} grimdar steypir; fremd er í gipt.

And {promoter of men} [= God], {impeller {of the house {of the high barrel of rain}}} [CLOUD > SKY/HEAVEN > = God], you cover {the forest of the mind} [SOUL] for the chosen army with abundant fruit, which the pernicious heat of a wicked life’s term will never damage nor {the violent storm-driver} [WIND] of wrath throw down; there is honour in grace.
