Viðir Fenris og flæðar
fyrri merkja spyrja
†mier í hyggju harri
hátt faðmandi sátta†,
þvíað, fylling ins fulla
friðar, af þínum iðrum
sýndir, geisla grundar,
guð og mann borinn sannan.

Og {viðir {flæðar Fenris}} spyrja fyrri merkja †mier í hyggju harri hátt faðmandi sátta†, þvíað fylling ins fulla friðar {grundar geisla}, sýndir sannan guð og mann, borinn af iðrum þínum.

And {trees {of the river of Fenrir <wolf>}} [BLOOD > WARRIORS] ask about former signs †…†, because, fulfilment of the absolute peace {of the land of sun-beams} [SKY/HEAVEN], you revealed true God and man, born of your womb.
