Borinn var blóms með æru
Bartoloméus skarta;
Indía liet á landi
lífið, flegið með knífi,
þann er þúsund sinnum
— það er ritningar vitni —
sigrar sæta fegri
sólar guðs fyrir stóli.
Blessi hier blíðr guð inni
Bartoloméus minni.

 

Bartholomew was born to shine with flourishing honour. He laid down his life in the land of India, [his body] flayed by a knife, that one who surpasses a thousand times the sweet beauty of the sun before the throne of God; — that is the testimony of a written text. May gentle God bless herein a memorial toast for Bartholomew.
