Hér sá ek alla         einum fylgja
jafnröskliga,         öðlings syni.
Hittumz heilir,         þá heðan líðum;
er eigi léttara         líf en dauði.

Hér sá ek alla fylgja einum, {syni öðlings}, jafnröskliga. Hittumz heilir, þá líðum heðan; líf er eigi léttara en dauði.

Here I saw that all followed one man, {the son of a prince} [PRINCE = Hálfr], with equal bravery. May we meet happily, when we pass from here; life is not easier than death.
