Hvergi rann á hennar
hár í loganum sárum;
klæðin fögr á fljóði
fölna eigi nie völna.
Hildr giekk hrings ór eldi
hæg og kyrr sem fyrri;
naut hun Máríu mætrar
miskunnar óbrunnin.

Rann hvergi á hár hennar í sárum loganum; fögr klæðin á fljóði fölna eigi nie völna. {Hildr hrings} giekk ór eldi, hæg og kyrr sem fyrri; óbrunnin naut hun miskunnar mætrar Máríu.

Her hair was not at all touched in the bitter flame; the fair clothes on the woman neither fade nor shrivel. {The Hildr <valkyrie> of the ring} [WOMAN] walked out of the fire, calm and quiet as before; unburned, she enjoyed the mercy of glorious Mary.
