Lifna fyrir lofað nafn
lætr síðan guð mætr;
sá hann upp og sætt hló
sína móður utan pín.
Fljóði gaz feginstíð
farnaðar og lífs barn;
gaf hun síðan guði lof
grátandi og þó kát.

Síðan lætr mætr guð lifna fyrir lofað nafn; hann sá upp og hló móður sína sætt utan pín. Fljóði gaz feginstíð farnaðar og barn lífs; síðan gaf hun guði lof, grátandi og þó kát.

Afterwards glorious God lets [him] revive because of the extolled name; he looked up and laughed at his mother sweetly without pain. The woman was given a joyous time of luck and the child alive; then she gave praise to God, weeping and yet cheerful.
