Eg segi riett, einginn mætti
ógrátandi vörrum láta,
Jésú minn, ef letrið læsi,
linhjartaðr, af píslum þínum,
því náttúran æpti af ótta
öll skjálfandi, en himnar sjálfir
týndu ljós, þá er berr var bundinn;
bifaðiz hauðr í þínum dauða.

 

I say rightly that no one could speak without weeping, my Jesus, if, tenderhearted, he were to read the record of your sufferings, because nature cried out with fear, all quaking, and the heavens themselves lost light, when you were bound naked; the earth trembled at your death.

notes: Cf. descriptions of the Crucifixion in Has 26 and Líkn 15-19. — [5-8]: The reaction of nature to the death of Jesus is recounted in Matt. XXVII.45, 51, Mark XV.33, 38, and Luke XXIII.44-6.

editions: Skj Eysteinn Ásgrímsson: Lilja 59 (AII, 382; BII, 406); Skald II, 222.
