Hár inn harðgreipi,         Hrólfr skjótandi,
ættum góðir menn,         þeirs ekki flýja,
vekka yðr at víni         né at vífs rúnum,
heldr vekk yðr at hǫrðum         Hildar leiki.

Hár inn harðgreipi, Hrólfr skjótandi, ættum góðir menn, þeirs flýja ekki, vekka yðr at víni né at rúnum vífs, heldr vekk yðr at {hǫrðum leiki Hildar}.

Hár the Hard-gripper, Hrólfr the Shooter, men of good lineage, who do not flee, I do not wake you for wine nor for a woman’s private conversation, rather I wake you for {the hard play of Hildr <valkyrie>} [BATTLE].
