Fyrirlátið mier, faðir hinn sæti,
fyrirlátið mier! Eg vil gráta
orð og hugsan allar gjörðir
auðmjúkligast og firraz dauða.
Því lýt eg þier fótum
þraungdr og kvaldr af mæðing taldri;
klökkur, hræddr eg þurfa þykkjumz
þína vægð í nauðum mínum.

 

Forgive me, sweet Father, forgive me! I will most humbly bewail all my deeds, words and thoughts, and avoid death. Therefore I bow down now at your feet, oppressed and tormented by the trouble I have told; contrite, afraid, I feel in my distress that I need your compassion.

notes: Cf. Has 9.
