Kantu mjúkligar,         mær in harðleita,
leika at hrækerti         en hölðar aðrir sex.
Sel þú mér sárloga         sveipinn orms dýnu;
fús em ek fljóð at kyssa;         fer sem má jöfri.

In harðleita mær, kantu leika at {hrækerti} mjúkligar en sex aðrir hölðar. Sel þú mér {sárloga} sveipinn {dýnu orms}; ek em fús at kyssa fljóð; fer jöfri sem má.

Hard-faced girl, you know how to play with {the corpse-candle} [SWORD] more nimbly than six other champions. Give me {the wound-flame} [SWORD], wrapped in {the eiderdown of the serpent} [GOLD]; I am eager to kiss the woman; let it go as it may with the prince [me].
