Gjarna vilda eg hilmis hlýrna
hróðr dýrligan finna móður;
vænti eg hryggr, verkann þiggi
vandað sæti heilags anda.
Umgaupnandi allrar skepnu,
orðið gief, sem eg mun krefja,
eitt eða tvau, svá yrkja mættig
enn sem fyrr til dýrðar henni.

 

I would like very much to find precious praise {for the mother {of the ruler of the sun and the moon}}; [= God (= Christ) > = Mary] I hope, sorrowful, that the adorned seat of the Holy Spirit may accept the poem. {Encompasser of all creation}, [= God] give the word which I may require, one or two, so that I can compose again as before to her glory.
