Félícitas sitr í sælu;
Sábína var numin frá pínu;
Praxis glez með prúða huxan,
Potenciána systir snótar.
Constancía kurteis meyja,
Klára þoldi dauða sáran;
Priska liez í prúðri æsku;
Púsina skínn guðs í húsi.

 

Felicity sits in bliss; Sabina was removed from torment; Praxis rejoices with her fine thought, Putentiana, the woman’s sister. Constantia, a courteous maiden, Clare suffered a painful death; Prisca died in the bloom of her youth; Pusina now shines in {God’s house}. [HEAVEN]
