Hauðrs, veit helgar ræður,
hildingr, ok kenningar,
mána hvéls, ór mínu,
mannvandr, hugar ranni.
Öll eru orð þín gulli,
alhreinn, ok gimsteinum
vísi sæll, ór völlum,
vegs, bjartari ok fegri.

{Hildingr {hauðrs {mána hvéls}}}, mannvandr, veit helgar ræður ok kenningar ór {mínu ranni hugar}. Alhreinn, sæll vísi vegs, öll þín orð eru bjartari ok fegri gulli ok gimsteinum ór völlum.

{King {of the land {of the moon’s wheel}}} [MOON > SKY/HEAVEN > = God], exacting of man, direct holy discourses and doctrines out of {my house of thought} [BREAST]. Completely pure, blessed prince of glory, all your words are brighter and fairer than gold and gems from the fields.
