Enn und hægri hendi
hyggjublíðr á síðu
hlaut af hvössu spjóti
höfugt sár konungr jöfra.
Árveitis rann ýta
eirsanns ór ben þeiri
— hugum skyldu þat höldar
heyra — vatn ok dreyri.

Enn á síðu und hægri hendi hlaut {hyggjublíðr konungr jöfra} höfugt sár af hvössu spjóti. Vatn ok dreyri rann ór þeiri ben {eirsanns árveitis ýta}; höldar skyldu heyra þat hugum.

Yet on his side under the right arm {the thought-tender king of princes} [RULER = Christ] received a heavy wound from a sharp spear. Water and blood flowed out of that wound {of the mercy-true abundance-giver of men} [= God (= Christ)]; men should hear that in their thoughts.
