Hás, kant hjörtu lýsa,
hreggranns konungr, seggja;
drottning dáðum
dagstalls veröld alla.
Blíð og blessuð móðir
blóm heilagra dóma
— dugir himna guð gumnum —
gjörvallra kallaz.

 

{King {of the high storm-house}}, [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] you know how to illuminate men’s hearts; {the queen {of the day-support}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = Mary] the whole world with virtues. The gentle and blessed mother may be called the flower of all holy judgements; the God of the heavens helps men.

notes: [5-8]: Repetition of the 2nd stef (also in sts 6 and 15) is indicated by an obelos in the right margin at 14r/12.
