Hervarðr, Hjörvarðr,         Hrani, Angantýr,
vek ek yðr alla         undir viðar rótum,
hjálmi ok með brynju,         hvössu sverði,
rönd ok með reiði,         roðnum geiri.

Hervarðr, Hjörvarðr, Hrani, Angantýr, ek vek yðr alla undir rótum viðar, hjálmi ok með brynju, hvössu sverði, rönd ok með reiði, roðnum geiri.

Hervarðr, Hjǫrvarðr, Hrani, Angantýr, I wake you all under the roots of the tree, with helmet and with mail-shirt, with sharp sword, with shield and with war-gear, with decorated spear.
