Heyr þú bæn Buslu;         brátt mun hon sungin,
svá at heyraz skal         um heim allan
ok óþörf öllum,         þeim sem á heyra,
en þeim þó fjandligust,         sem ek vil fortala.

Heyr þú bæn Buslu; hon mun sungin brátt, svá at skal heyraz um allan heim ok öllum óþörf, þeim sem á heyra, en þó fjandligust þeim, sem ek vil fortala.

Hear Busla’s plea; it will soon be sung, so that it will be heard over the whole world, and harmful for all those who hear [it], but yet most ruinous for that one whom I wish to curse.
