Þurt er mier í hring um hjarta,
hvarma lón þó renni af sjónum;
svik eru slíkt og synda auki
sárr, ef hrósa eg slíkum tárum.
Hlotnaz láttu hjálparvatnið,
hreggskríns jöfurr, svá nægi mínu;
hryni mier með helgum bænum
hvarma laugin út af augum.

 

It is dry around my heart, although {the pool of the eyelids} [TEARS] runs from my eyes; such is the deceit and bitter increase of sins, if I praise such tears. {Prince {of the storm-shrine}}, [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] let the salvation-water be allotted, so that it is sufficient for me; may {that cleansing-water of the eyelids} [TEARS] flow out of my eyes with holy prayers.
