Síðan reis með sigri af dauða
sunnudag og gjörði kunnan
sinn ódauðleik mörgum manni
mildin sjálf, þó deyja vildi.
Tvennar gieingu tvisvar sinnum
tíu dægranna rásir hægar,
áðr en upp yfir himnahæðir
hæfi hann blóð, það er tók af móður.

 

Then rose goodness itself with victory from death on a Sunday and made known his immortality to many a man, though he had chosen to die [lit. wanted to die]. Two times two calm streams of ten days passed, before he would raise the blood, which he took from his mother, up over the heights of the heavens.

notes: [1-2]: The Sunday Letter tradition represented by Leið celebrates Sunday as the day of the Resurrection; see especially  Leið 31. — [5-6]: A reference to the forty days between the Resurrection and the Ascension of Jesus (Acts I.3).
