Sæk þú Snarvendil;         sigr mun honum fylgja,
hoskr, ef þú, hilmir, vilt         þér í hendi bera.
Koss vil ek af þér         klénan þiggja;
þá muntu mímung         mér ór hendi fá.

Sæk þú Snarvendil; sigr mun fylgja honum, ef þú, hoskr hilmir, vilt bera í hendi þér. Ek vil þiggja klénan koss af þér; þá muntu fá mímung ór hendi mér.

Take Snarvendill; victory will follow it, if you, wise prince, want to carry it in your hand. I want to get a nice kiss from you; then you will get the sword from my hand.
