Kristr setti frið fastan
fimr meðal láðs ok himna
— nauðr es þegnum þýðask
þann veg — goðs ok manna,
ok dáðskreyttan dróttinn
dags hallar frið lagði
— þat vas sunnudag — sinnar
snjallr meðal skepnu allrar.

Fimr Kristr setti fastan frið meðal láðs ok himna, goðs ok manna — nauðr es þegnum þýðask þann veg —, ok {snjallr dróttinn {dags hallar}} lagði dáðskreyttan frið meðal allrar skepnu sinnar; þat vas sunnudag.

Nimble Christ established firm peace between earth and heavens, God and men — it is necessary for men to receive that glory —, and {the valiant lord {of the day’s hall}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] laid down deed-adorned peace throughout his entire creation; that was on a Sunday.
