Þykkjumz eg í þinn flokk
þeygi kunna, guðs mey
skærust, sem skylt er,
skilin orð að fá til.
Verði þier valin dýrð,
vífa sæmdin, eilíf
um alla heims höll
haldin með guðs vald.

{Skærust mey guðs}, eg þykkjumz þeygi kunna að fá til skilin orð í flokk þinn, sem er skylt. Verði valin, eilíf dýrð haldin þier, {sæmdin vífa}, um {alla höll heims} með vald guðs.

{Purest Virgin of God} [= Mary], I do not consider myself at all able to procure clear words for your poem, as obliged. May choice, eternal honour be maintained for you, {the glory of women} [= Mary], throughout {the entire hall of the world} [UNIVERSE] by the power of God.
