Dag reið sinn með sigri
siklingr blíðr til víðrar
sólbryggju — hratt seggja
sorg — Jórsalaborgar.
En fyr ǫðling ríkjan
óhræðinn litklæði
þar vann lýðr á láði
lopthjalms borit palma.

{Blíðr siklingr {sólbryggju}} reið dag sinn með sigri til víðrar Jórsalaborgar — sorg seggja hratt —, en lýðr þar á láði vann borit litklæði, palma fyr {óhræðinn, ríkjan ǫðling {lopthjalms}}.

{The joyful prince {of the sun-pier}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] rode on his day with victory to the extensive city of Jerusalem — men’s sorrow was ended —, and the people in that country put coloured cloths [and] palms before {the fearless, powerful prince {of the sky-helmet}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)].
