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

 

{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.
