Tunga það alls aung
inna í brag sinn,
hvessu móðir míns guðs
mundi heiðra göfugt sprund,
þá er föður hrings hlíð
hreinum færði kvikan svein,
þann er fjörvi fjogur dægr
firðr á börum stirðr.

 

No tongue at all can express that in its poetry, how {the mother of my God} [= Mary] could honour a glorious woman, when {the slope of the ring} [WOMAN] brought to the pure father the living boy, who lay, deprived of life, for two days and nights stiff on the bier.
