Manna hjálp og miskunn
mátti eigi hrings gátt
leingr fyrir lífsangr
láta bera sinn grát,
svá að í limu líkams
litr kom og fagrt vit;
sendiz aftr sæl önd;
sveini gaf það mey hrein.

{Hjálp og miskunn manna} mátti eigi leingr láta {gátt hrings} bera grát sinn fyrir lífsangr, svá að litr og fagrt vit kom í limu líkams; sæl önd sendiz aftr; hrein mey gaf sveini það.

{The help and mercy of men} [= Mary] could no longer let {the door-frame of the ring} [WOMAN] endure her weeping because of her life-woe, so that colour and sweet consciousness came into the limbs of the body; the blessed spirit was sent back; the pure Virgin gave that to the boy.
