Tröll ok álfar         ok töfrnornir,
búar, bergrisar         brenni þínar hallir.
Hati þik hrímþussar,         hestar streði þik,
stráin stangi þik,         en stormar æri þik,
ok vei verði þér,         nema þú vilja minn gjorir.

Tröll ok álfar ok töfrnornir, búar, bergrisar brenni hallir þínar. Hrímþussar hati þik, hestar streði þik, stráin stangi þik, en stormar æri þik, ok verði þér vei, nema þú gjorir vilja minn.

May trolls and elves and magic-Norns, supernatural inhabitants and mountain giants burn your halls. May frost giants loathe you, stallions violate you, straw prick you and storms bewilder you; and harm will come to you unless you do my bidding.
