Fárskerðir býðr fyrðum
friðkunnan dag sunnu
ýtum hollr of allan
aldr dýrliga at halda.
Gefa kvezk mætr í móti
meinhrjóðandi þjóðum
ár með ǫllum tíri
ok frið hreinan.

 

{The misfortune-diminisher}, [= God] gracious to men, commands men to observe ceremoniously the peace-known day of the sun thoughout all ages. {The worthy harm-destroyer} [= God] says he will give the peoples in return abundance and pure peace with all glory.
