Skríðiat það skip
er und þér skríði
þótt óskabyrr
eftir leggiz!
Rennia sá marr
er und þér renni
þóttu fjándr þína
forðaz eigir!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘May the ship you sail on not go forward,*
though the wind you need has sprung up behind;
may the horse you ride on not go forward,
though you need to escape your enemies.
)
