Dætur þrjár með dygð og vitru
dygðargædd er Anna fæddi,
Máríu liet hun meyna heita,
meir elskandi en hverja þeira.
Ættprúðasta Jóachíms dóttur
átti hun fyst, er dýrkaz mátti;
kunnig er nú Máría mönnum;
menn allir fá líkn af henni.

Er dygðargædd Anna fæddi þrjár dætur með dygð og vitru, liet hun meyna heita Máríu, elskandi meir en hverja þeira. Fyst átti hun Jóachíms ættprúðasta dóttur, er dýrkaz mátti; Máría er nú kunnig mönnum; allir menn fá líkn af henni.

When virtue-endowed Anna gave birth to three daughters [equipped] with virtue and wisdom she let the maiden be called Mary, loving [her, the Virgin Mary] more than any of the others. First she had Joachim’s highest-born daughter, who could be worshipped; Mary is now known to people; all people receive mercy from her.
