Meyjar bað men-Týr
mætrar, sá er fágætr,
hljótr fekk við hryggbrot
hásætrs vátar nætr;
krapti var ok konu sviptr
kauði, var hann þess trauðr;
slík gjǫraz mál mjó
mærðar í skaup færð.

Páter ertu ok princeps feiti,
prócussúl ertu svartra pússa,
rex heitir þú lifra ljóssa,
látprúðr ertu domnús húða,
preses ertu ok lofðungr lýsis,
leðrs kalla þik césarem allir,
mágister ertu maks ok leista,
margsvinnr ertu dúx fyr skinnum.
