Gekk inn ísal,
var karls, er kom,
Verþú heill, Hymir,
Nú er sonr kominn
til sala þinna,
sá er við vættum
af vegi löngum;
Véurr heitir sá. (eddic or germanic)
(He entered the hall, the icicles tinkled
when he came in: the old man’s cheek-forest was frozen.*
‘Greetings, Hymir, be of good humour!
Now our son has come to your hall,
he whom we’ve expected on his long journeyings.
Hrod’s adversary accompanies him,*
the friend of warriors, Veor is his name.
