Ítarligr er öllum betri
eingla grundar blessaðr þeingill;
lýðr er allur leiftra stillis
lofi dýrligstu skyldr ofra.
Öllum hlutum er æðri og sælli
eilífligastr skepnu deilir;
honum sie dýrð á himni og jörðu;
hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

 

{The glorious, blessed lord {of the land of angels}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] is better than everyone; all people are obliged to lift up the most precious praise {of the prince of lightnings}. [= God] {The most eternal ordainer of creation} [= God] is more distinguished and blessed than all things; glory be to him in heaven and on earth; he is higher than everything else.
