Mier giefi hljóð, sá er heyrir
hjarta mitt, og bjarta
orðasnild, um aldir,
auðgreinandi, hreina.
Guð vil eg göfgan biðja,
— guðs vild er það mildust —
að hann miskunnar minniz,
minn, á skepnu sinni.

{Auðgreinandi}, sá er heyrir hjarta mitt um aldir, giefi mier hljóð og bjarta, hreina orðasnild. Eg vil biðja göfgan guð minn, að hann minniz miskunnar á skepnu sinni; það er mildust vild guðs.

May {the wealth-divider} [= God], who hears my heart throughout the ages, give me voice and bright, pure eloquence. I want to implore my glorious God that he remember mercy for his creation; that is the most generous wish of God.
