Hervarðr, Hjörvarðr,         Hrani, Angantýr,
svá sé yðr öllum         innan rifja,
sem þér í maura         mornið haugi,
nema sverð selið,         þat er sló Dvalinn;
samira draugum         dýr vápn fela.

Hervarðr, Hjörvarðr, Hrani, Angantýr, svá sé yðr öllum innan rifja, sem þér mornið í maurahaugi, nema selið sverð, þat er Dvalinn sló; samira draugum fela dýr vápn.

Hervarðr, Hjǫrvarðr, Hrani, Angantýr, may it be to you all within your ribs as if you rot in an anthill, unless you give [me] the sword, which Dvalinn forged; it is not fitting for revenants to hide precious weapons.
