Drekka í höllu         húskarlar mjöð,
menjum göfgir         at míns föður.
Mæðir marga         mungát fira,
en mik eggja spor         í ey þjá.

Húskarlar drekka mjöð í höllu, göfgir menjum at míns föður. Mungát mæðir marga fira, en spor eggja þjá mik í ey.

Retainers are drinking mead in the hall, splendid with jewels at my father’s [court]. Beer exhausts many men, but the marks of the sword blades enslave me on the island.
