Beiði ek Geirrøð         með goða hylli,
kappa inn stærsta,         koma mér at bjarga,
ok beðju mína         beint sem aðra;
þarf ek nú allra         þeira gengis.

Ek beiði Geirrøð með hylli goða, kappa inn stærsta, koma at bjarga mér, ok beðju mína beint sem aðra; nú þarf ek gengis allra þeira.

I implore Geirrøðr, with the favour of the gods, the greatest champion, to come and rescue me, and my bed-fellow likewise along with the others; now I need the help of them all.
