Haldi oss frá eldi
eilífr skapa deilir
Kristr styrkr ok myrkrum
menn, es heim líðr þenna,
svát ǫll í frið fullan
farim heim, es skilr beima
alls stýrandi, órum
óttalaus með dróttni.

 

May {the eternal ruler of fates}, [= God (= Christ)] powerful Christ, keep us men from fire and darkness, when this world passes away, so that we may all go home into complete peace, fearlessly with our Lord, when {the steerer of all} [= God] divides men.
