Dýrðar, gief þú, dóms vörðr,
dróttinn, er alt gott
veitir, bragarbót,
brögnum, gjaldi hier þögn.
Móður þinnar, minn guð,
megna vil eg jartegn,
segja það, er sæl mey
sætu dugði ágæt.

 

{Guardian {of the court of glory}}, [HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] Lord, who provides men with everything good, grant that they here give silence to the poetic improvement [lit. poem’s improvement]. My God, I wish to glorify a miracle of your mother, to tell how [lit. to tell about it, that] the magnificent, blessed Virgin helped a woman.
