Yfirþengill skóp engla
einn sunnudag hreina;
sǫnn hefr siklingr unnit
slík verk himinríkis.
Ok heimstýrir, harra,
heppinn, þás skóp skepnu
þann setti dag, dróttinn
dýrðar mildr, til hvílðar.

Einn yfirþengill skóp hreina engla sunnudag; {siklingr himinríkis} hefr unnit slík sǫnn verk; ok {heppinn heimstýrir} setti þann dag til hvílðar, þás {dróttinn harra}, dýrðar mildr, skóp skepnu.

The one overlord created the pure angels on a Sunday; {the king of the heaven-kingdom} [= God] has performed true deeds such as these; and {the fortunate world-ruler} [= God] established that day for rest, when {the lord of lords} [= God], generous in glory, brought creation into being
