Heyrðu mig nú, himins og jarðar
háleit bygðin allra dygða,
megindrotningin manna og eingla,
móðir guðs og lækning þjóða;
þá er mæðumz í nógum nauðum,
nálæg vertu minni sálu;
vef þú ágætu verndarskauti,
ván mín sönn til hjálpar mönnum.

Heyrðu mig nú, háleit bygðin allra dygða himins og jarðar, {megindrotningin manna og eingla}, {móðir guðs} og lækning þjóða; þá er mæðumz í nógum nauðum, vertu nálæg sálu minni; vef þú ágætu verndarskauti, sönn ván mín til hjálpar mönnum.

Hear me now, sublime dwelling of all the virtues of heaven and earth, {great queen of men and angels} [= Mary], {mother of God} [= Mary] and healing of people; when I suffer in great need, be near my soul; enfold [it] in your famous protecting mantle, my true hope for the help of men.
