‘Munni hans,’ kvað mekt sönn,
mart lúkiz upp bjart;
tungan endi sinn saung,
og sjái fyst, hvað það má.’
Skýja laus skör ló;
skilja má, að kantil
Áve Máría upphaf
á var þar skráð þá.

‘Munni hans,’ kvað sönn mekt, ‘lúkiz mart upp bjart; tungan endi saung sinn, og sjái fyst, hvað það má.’ {Laus skör skýja} ló; má skilja, að kantil, Áve Máría upphaf, var þá skráð þar á.

‘Through his mouth,’ said the True Power, ‘much may be revealed brightly; the tongue ended its song, and let us first see, what that can do.’ {The deceitful crowd of clouds} [DEVILS] lied; one can discern that a song, Hail Mary, the beginning, was then written on it.
