Sungu sætt og leingi
sannfróðir guðs móður
lýðir lof, þá er brúði
litu hvíta þar sitja.
Lietu síðan sætu
seimstalls viðir allir
fara í friði og æru;
fljóð var sátt og þjóðir.

 

The truth-knowing people sang the praise {of the mother of God} [= Mary] sweetly and for a long time when they saw the woman sitting there unblemished [lit. white]. Then {all the trees {of the gold-seat}} [ARM > MEN] let the lady go in peace and honour; the woman and the people were reconciled.
