Snyðja lætr í sólroð
snekkjur á Manar hlekk
(árla sér ungr jarl)
allvaldr (breka fall).
Lypta kná lýðr opt
lauki of kjalar raukn;
greiða náir glygg váð;
greipum mœta dragreip.

Allvaldr lætr snekkjur snyðja á {hlekk Manar} í sólroð; árla sér ungr jarl fall breka. Lýðr kná opt lypta lauki of {raukn kjalar}; glygg náir greiða váð; dragreip mœta greipum.

The mighty ruler makes warships hasten on {the chain of Man <island>} [SEA] at dawn; early the young jarl sees the falling of the breakers. People often lift the mast on {the draught-animals of the keel} [SHIPS]; the storm unfolds the sail; halyards meet hands.
