Mjök tekr sjór at svella;
svá er nú drepit skýjum;
því ráða galdrar gamlir,
er gjálfr ór stað færiz.
Ei skal ek við ægi
í ofviðri berjaz;
látum Sólundir seggjum
svellvífaðar hlífa.

Sjór tekr mjök at svella; svá er nú drepit skýjum; gamlir galdrar ráða því, er gjálfr færiz ór stað. Ek skal ei berjaz við ægi í ofviðri; látum svellvífaðar Sólundir hlífa seggjum.

The sea begins to swell greatly; thus clouds are now louring; old spells cause the surge to be moved from its place. I will not fight against the ocean in the violent storm; let us make the ice-covered Sula islands protect the men.
