hefi ek órar
iðnir talðar,
þær er forðum vér
framðar höfðum.
Opt gengum vér
til öndvegis
sigri fegnir;
látum Sjólf mæla!

 

Now I have enumerated our [my] deeds, those which we [I] have performed formerly. Often we [I] went to the high seat rejoicing in victory; let us [me] make Sjólfr speak!

context: As for Ǫrv 53.

notes: Aside from l. 1, all pronouns, adjectives and verbs in this stanza are pl., but it is assumed that Oddr is speaking of himself here, though it is possible that he includes his close companions.
