Kom heill, Fenix,         hingat til lands!
Þú glóar allr         sem gull rautt;
allra fugla         ertu konungr.

Kom heill, Fenix, hingat til lands! Þú glóar allr sem rautt gull; ertu konungr allra fugla.

Welcome, Fenix, here to this land! You shine all over like red gold; you are king of all birds.
