Skært ljós skugglaus birti
skein yfir krossin hreina,
þá er Andréas endi
aldr, með drottins valdi.
Sá hann guð sjálfr í dauða
sier bjóðandi þjóða
prýðir faðminn fríða;
frægð slík himinríkis.

Skært ljós skugglaus birti skein yfir hreina krossin með drottins valdi, þá er Andréas endi aldr. Hann sjálfr {prýðir þjóða} sá í dauða guð bjóðandi sier fríða faðminn; slík frægð himinríkis.

A clear light, a shadowless brightness, shone over the pure cross through the Lord’s power, when Andrew ended his life. He himself, {the adorner of nations} [HOLY MAN], saw in death God offering him his fair embrace; such [is] the fame of the heavenly kingdom.
