Gefr, sás ǫllum efri,
ǫðlingr salar rǫðla
— goð magnar þrif þegna —
þjóðum allt it góða.
Gramr skóp hauðr ok himna
hreggranns sem kyn seggja;
einns salkonungr sólar
snjallr hjalpari allra.

{Ǫðlingr {salar rǫðla}}, sás efri ǫllum, gefr þjóðum allt it góða; goð magnar þrif þegna. {Gramr {hreggranns}} skóp hauðr ok himna sem kyn seggja; {snjallr {sólar sal}konungr} [e]s einn hjalpari allra.

{The prince {of the hall of heavenly bodies}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God], who is higher than all, gives to people all that is good — God strengthens the prosperity of his servants. {The king {of the storm-house}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] made land and skies as well as the race of men; {the excellent king {of the hall of the sun}} [(lit. ‘hall-king of the sun’) HEAVEN > = God] is alone the helper of all.
