Nú hefi eg út fyrir ýtum
intag svá, að minti —
inta jartegn eina
alhróðigs guðs móður.
Veittu, Máría, meiri
miskunn, en vier kunnum
oss, þá er andir missum,
iðröndum guð biðja.

Nú hefi eg inta eina jartegn {móður alhróðigs guðs} út fyrir ýtum; intag svá, að minti. Máría, veittu meiri miskunn, en vier kunnum biðja guð oss iðröndum, þá er missum andir.

Now I have told one miracle {of the mother of all-glorious God} [= Mary] to the end before the people; I composed it thus, so that it should be remembered. Mary, grant more mercy than we are able to ask God for us penitents, when we give up our spirits.
