skal drótt á lok líta
— lopthjalms dǫgum optar
dýrkim dǫglings verka
dáðhress — bragar þessa.
Heim laði dýrr frá dómi
dags hallar gramr allan
— þjóð hjali kersk of kvæði —
kristinn lýð til vistar.

 

The company shall now look on the end of this poem; let us praise more often than [there are] days the works {of the deed-hearty king {of the sky-helmet}}. May [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] {the glorious prince {of day’s hall}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] invite all Christian folk home from judgement to his dwelling place; may people chatter cheerfully about the poem.
