Pétr er páfi drottins
prísaðr gleðivísum;
hvílir hans líkið sæla
höfuðdómarans í Róma.
Yfirpostula æstan
allir skulum hann kalla;
várr er völdugr herra
vörðr á himni og jörðu.
Prýðir hier pall várn inni
Pétr með sínu minni.

 

Peter is the Lord’s Pope, praised in verses of joy; the blessed body of him, the chief judge, rests in Rome. We must all call him the noblest chief Apostle; the mighty Lord is our protector in heaven and on earth. Peter adorns our bench herein with his memorial toast.
