Dýrkleifar kom dúfa
dags ok krisma lagði
meginskjǫldungi mildum
mæt í hattar stræti.

Mæt dúfa kom ok lagði krisma í {stræti hattar} {mildum meginskjǫldungi {dýrkleifar dags}}.

A worthy dove came and laid chrism on {the hood’s street} [HEAD] {of the generous powerful ruler {of day’s precious cliff}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = Christ].
