Enn móð í styr stríðum,
sterkr græðari, skæðu
eflið ýgra djöfla,
aldar … fyri valdi.
Prýðir önd í andar
orrostu mannkostum,
né drengjum þar þröngva
þrír óvinir skírum.

Sterkr græðari aldar, enn eflið móð … í stríðum styr fyri skæðu valdi ýgra djöfla. Prýðir önd mannkostum í orrostu andar, né þröngva þrír óvinir þar skírum drengjum.

Mighty healer of mankind, you still strengthen courage … in the harsh battle against the dangerous power of vicious devils. You equip the soul with virtues in the battle of the spirit, neither do the three enemies subdue pure men there.
