Þats rétt, at dag dróttins
dǫglingr myni hingat
lopts ok lýðum skipta
ljósgims koma af himnum.
Oss skyldi sú aldri
ógnartíð in stríða
— drótt biði sikling sátta
sólvangs — ór hug ganga.

Þats rétt, at {dǫglingr {lopts {ljósgims}}} myni koma hingat af himnum dróttins dag ok skipta lýðum. Sú in stríða ógnartíð skyldi oss aldri ganga ór hug; drótt biði {sikling {sólvangs}} sátta.

It is true that {the king {of the loft {of the light-jewel}}} [SUN > SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] will come here from the heavens on the Lord’s day and divide people. That severe time of terror should never go out of our minds; let the people beg {the prince {of the sun-plain}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] for reconciliation.
