Hjörtun játi; falli og fljóti
fagnaðarlaug af hvers manns augum;
æ þakkandi miskunn mjúka
minn drottinn, í holdgan þinni;
Sie þier dýrð með sannri prýði,
sunginn heiðr af öllum tungum
eilífliga með sigri og sælu;
sæmd og vald það minkaz aldri.

 

Let hearts confess; let {a hot spring [TEARS] of joy} fall and flow from every man’s eyes, forever thanking mild mercy in your Incarnation, my Lord. Let there be to you glory with true beauty, honour sung from all tongues, eternally with victory and blessing; honour and that power will never be diminished.

notes: [5-8]: The second iteration of the stef introduced at st. 26. Most mss abbreviate the ll., but Vb, 41ˣ and 4892 have them in full. The scribe of Bb adds a cross within a square immediately after his abbreviated l. 5, within the body of the text column, not in the margin.
