Stinn sár þróask stórum;
sterk egg frǫmum seggjum
hvast skerr hlífar traustar;
hár gramr lifir framla.
Hrein sverð litar harða
hverr drengr; gǫfugr þengill
— ítr rǫnd furask undrum —
unir bjartr snǫru hjarta.

Stinn sár þróask stórum; sterk egg skerr hvast traustar hlífar frǫmum seggjum; hár gramr lifir framla. Hverr drengr litar harða hrein sverð; ítr rǫnd furask undrum; gǫfugr þengill unir bjartr snǫru hjarta.

Severe wounds increase greatly; the strong edge sharply cuts firm shields for outstanding men; the sublime lord lives splendidly. Each warrior powerfully colours polished swords; the precious shield-rim is wonderfully furrowed; the glorious ruler enjoys, cheerful, a bold heart.
