Því skal hugga þik,
hers oddviti,
sú mun gift lagið
ágrams ævi;
munat mætri maðr
ámold koma
und sólar sjöt
en þú, Sigurðr, þikkir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘This shall console you, leader of the army,
this luck’s laid down in the prince’s life:
no mightier man will walk on the earth,
under the sun’s dwelling, than you, Sigurd, seem to be.’
