Bæn heyr, bragningr, mína,
bila muntat þú vilja
veita vægð at móti,
veðrskríns, lofi þínu.
Sjálfr eggjar þú seggja
sveit á þik at heita
(þat viðr), gumna gætir,
(gerbænan mik) hverja.

{Bragningr {veðrskríns}}, heyr mína bæn; þú muntat vilja bila veita vægð at móti lofi þínu. Sjálfr eggjar þú hverja seggja sveit at heita á þik, {gumna gætir}; þat viðr mik gerbænan.

{King of {the storm-shrine}} [HEAVEN > = God], hear my prayer; you will not desire to fail to grant mercy in return for praise of you [lit. your praise]. You yourself urge each host of men to call upon you, {guardian of men} [= God]; that makes me prayer-eager.
