Gladdi gunnveitir         — gengum fagrbúnir —
Þjaza þingskilum         þjóðir hermargar,
Rínar rauðmalmi,         rógi Niflunga,
vísi inn vígdjarfi;         vakði hann Baldr þeygi.

{Gunnveitir}, inn vígdjarfi vísi, gladdi hermargar þjóðir – gengum fagrbúnir – {þingskilum Þjaza}, {rauðmalmi Rínar}, {rógi Niflunga}; hann vakði Baldr þeygi.

{The battle-granter} [WARRIOR], the battle-bold prince, gladdened the very numerous troops – we went beautifully adorned – {with Þjazi’s <giant’s> assembly declarations} [GOLD], {with the red metal of the Rhine <river>} [GOLD], {with the strife of the Niflungar <legendary heroes>} [GOLD]; he did not wake Baldr at all.
