Tak hér við horni,
er þér Hörðr færir;
gef reiði
ok ræðum þá síðan.
Þú hefir oss hólpit,
en vér yðr borgit
öllum ór ánauðum;
ynðis vér njótum.

 

Receive here the horn which Hǫrðr brings you; give peace to your wrath now, and afterwards we will talk. You have helped us, and we have saved you from all oppressions; let us enjoy pleasure.

context: In a light-hearted and successful attempt to calm Hjálmþér’s mood over having lost face in finding the true identities of those formerly enchanted figures with whom he had interacted, not knowing who they were, King Hringr offers him a drinking horn and hospitality, which Hjálmþér finally accepts.

notes: Hjálmþérsrímur IX, 74-7 (Finnur Jónsson 1905-22, II, 65-6) cover the sentiments of this stanza.
