Heil, þú er hjálpar sálum,
heims prýði og líf beima
dýrð himneskrar hirðar
heiðskírt deilis.
Þú ert makligast miklu
miskunnar ker funnið,
hjálp og sæla
hrein, m guði einum.

 

Hail, you who help souls, world’s adornment and clear life of men, glory {of the provider of the heavenly court}. [= God] Pure help and bliss, you are revealed as by far the most deserving vessel of mercy with the one God.
