Upp mundum vér         allir ganga,
skatna beztir,         af skipum várum,
láta brenna         bragninga sveit
ok Ásmundar lið         aldri týna.

Vér, beztir skatna, mundum allir ganga upp af skipum várum, láta brenna sveit bragninga ok lið Ásmundar týna aldri.

We, the best of warriors, should all go up from our ships, let the band of men burn and [make] the troops of Ásmundr lose [their] lives.
