Veittu, að lof liett
líði framm á gleðitíð,
Andréas, að mjúk mynd
mærðar væri guði færð,
hvessu mætust mjúklát
móðir og þrautgóð
brúði, þeiri er bar nauð,
bónum krafðiz guðs kvón.

Veittu, að liett lof líði framm á gleðitíð, Andréas, að mjúk mynd mærðar væri færð guði, hvessu mætust móðir, mjúklát og þrautgóð, {kvón guðs}, krafðiz bónum brúði, þeiri er bar nauð.

Grant that effortless [lit. light] eulogy might flow forth at a time of joy, Andrew, so that the smooth shape of praise would be brought to God, about how the most glorious mother, gentle-minded and good in misery, {the wife of God} [= Mary], was invoked with prayers by a woman who was in need.
