Villiz vættir,         verði ódæmi,
hristiz hamrar,         heimr sturliz,
vestni veðrátta,         verði ódæmi,
nema þú, Hringr konungr,         Herrauð friðir
ok honum Bósa         bjargir veitir.

Vættir villiz, ódæmi verði, hamrar hristiz, heimr sturliz, veðrátta vestni, ódæmi verði, nema þú, Hringr konungr, veitir Herrauð friðir ok honum Bósa bjargir.

May spirit beings become lost, may the monstrous become reality, may the cliffs falter, may the world become disturbed, may the weather become chaotic, may the monstrous become reality, unless you, King Hringr, make peace with Herrauðr and grant freedom to Bósi.
