Aldýran biðk óra
orðfæri guð stæra,
en hyrmeiðar hlýði
haukstiettar brag sliettan.
Ágæta vilk ítrum
ulfsfæðendum ræðu
— víst og vífs inssta
vegr guðs er það — segja.

Biðk aldýran guð stæra óra orðfæri, en {{{haukstiettar} hyr}meiðar} hlýði sliettan brag. Vilk segja {ítrum ulfsfæðendum} ágæta ræðu; það er víst guðs vegr og inssta vífs.

I ask altogether precious God to strengthen our [my] eloquence and that {the trees {of the fire {of the hawk’s path}}} [(lit. ‘fire-trees of the hawk’s path’) ARM > GOLD > MEN] may listen to the smooth poem. I want to tell {noble wolf-feeders} [WARRIORS] an excellent tale; that is certainly God’s glory and that of the highest woman [i.e. Virgin Mary].
