Þurfum ei, drengir,         dauða at kvíða!
Veri þjóðglaðir,         þegnar mínir!
Þat mun verða,         ef vitu draumar,
at ek eiga mun         Ingibjörgu.

Drengir, þurfum ei at kvíða dauða! Veri þjóðglaðir, þegnar mínir! Þat mun verða, ef draumar vitu, at ek mun eiga Ingibjörgu.

Comrades, we do not need to be afraid of death! Be really happy, my retainers! It will come about, if dreams are indicative, that I will marry Ingibjǫrg.

Notes: [All]: This stanza is in regular fornyrðislag. There is a good deal of minor variation in the ms. paradosis for this stanza, and it is shortened in 1006ˣ and 173ˣ, which omit ll. 1-2 and shorten l. 5. — [6] ef draumar vitu ‘if dreams are indicative’: That is, if there is anything to be learnt from dreams. On this sense of vita, see LP: vita 5.
