Oss fel þú lastalausa,
líkn vel kend, á hendi,
komin upp á hæð himna,
hjálp mín, syni þínum.
Hrittu öllum ótta
undirgrefti og heiftum
flærða hart af fyrðum
fáröflugra djöfla.

Fel þú oss lastalausa á hendi syni þínum, vel kend líkn, hjálp mín, komin upp á hæð himna. Hrittu öllum ótta, undirgrefti og heiftum fáröflugra djöfla flærða hart af fyrðum.

Entrust us, free from faults, into the hand of your son, well-known mercy, my help, come up to the height of the heavens. Drive all fear, undermining and the malevolence of anger-strong devils of deceits forcefully away from men.
