Verðim vér ok fyrðar
— vili svá faðir skilja —
hilmis frægs til hœgri
handar allra landa,
ok heim dýrstr frá dómi
dagskeiðs jǫfurr leiði
oss frá ótta hvǫssum
ǫll til himna hallar.

Verðim vér ok fyrðar til hœgri handar {frægs hilmis allra landa} — vili faðir skilja svá —, ok {dýrstr jǫfurr {dagskeiðs}} leiði oss ǫll frá hvǫssum ótta, frá dómi, heim til {hallar himna}.

May we [I] and [other] men be at the right hand {of the famous ruler of all lands} [= God] — may the Father be willing to decide thus — and may {the most dear prince {of the day-course}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] lead us all from acute fear, from judgement, home to {the hall of the heavens} [SKY/HEAVEN].
