The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Að undrsjónum þú verðir
er þú út kjömr;
áþik Hrímnir hari,
áþik hotvetna stari;
víðkunnari þú verðir
en vörðr með goðum,
gapiþú grindum frá.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘May you become a spectacle when you come out;
may Hrimnir glare at you, may everything stare at you,
better known may you be than the watchman among the gods,*
may you gape through the bars!)
