Svá fýsumz eg, sæti Jésú,
synda líkn, að þeira myndir
lítaz mier, sem liggi þrútið
linna eitr um hjartað innan.
Send hingað mier sjaufalds anda
sanna gift, er leysi ór banni
mína önd, svá að mættag þjóna,
Máríu blómi, fyrir yðarn sóma.

Sæti Jésú, svá fýsumz eg líkn synda, að myndir þeira lítaz mier, sem eitr linna liggi innan um þrútið hjartað. Send mier hingað sanna gift sjaufalds anda, er leysi önd mína ór banni, svá að mættag þjóna fyrir sóma yðarn, {blómi Máríu}.

Sweet Jesus, I so long for mercy on my sins, that images of them appear to me as if serpents’ venom lies inside around my swollen heart. Send to me here the true gift of the sevenfold Spirit, which can loose my soul from its ban, so that I may serve to your honour, {fruit of Mary} [= Christ].
