Vaki þú, Angantýr;         vekr þik Hervör,
eingadóttir         ykkr Sváfu.
Selðu mér ór haugi         hvassan mæki,
þann er Svafrlama         slógu dvergar.

Vaki þú, Angantýr; Hervör vekr þik, eingadóttir ykkr Sváfu. Selðu mér ór haugi hvassan mæki, þann er dvergar slógu Svafrlama.

Waken, Angantýr; Hervǫr wakes you, only daughter to you and Sváfa. Give me from the mound the sharp sword which dwarfs forged for Svafrlami.
