Synda veittu, sannreynd,
sanna, við guð og mann,
þó vier brjótum, meyin mæt,
móti honum, yfirbót.
Og sönnu son þinn
sálir fyrir lífs mál
græðarann gieti sieð
glaðan; veittu oss það.

 

Glorious Virgin, proven true to God and man, grant true expiation of sins, although we offend against him. And may the souls indeed be able to see your son, the joyous Saviour, beyond life’s measure; grant us that.

notes: For the echo of Hail Mary (ora pro nobis ‘pray for us’), see Notes to Mv I, 27.
