Þegar gjörðu þá mjög
þjóðir og göfugt fljóð
lofa ljúft víf
listuga, er bar Krist.
Og með þrifum þaðan af
þjóna tóku guði hjón;
þeira var blíðr burr
bráðgjörr og heilráðr.

 

At once, then, the people and the splendid woman began to praise greatly the gentle lady, the graceful one, who bore Christ. And from then on the couple began to serve God with prosperity; their cheerful son was early mature and wise in counsel.
