Þerfiliga þaðan af
þakkir gjörði hugrakkr,
meðan endiz líf lunds
linna, við guð sinn.
Og af mönnum mest ann
maðr sjá fyrir dugnað
Máríu, sem vón var,
verkin bætti sjá klerkr.

Þaðan af gjörði hugrakkr þerfiliga þakkir við guð sinn, meðan líf {lunds linna} endiz. Og af mönnum ann sjá maðr Máríu mest fyrir dugnað, sem var vón; sjá klerkr bætti verkin.

From then on the brave-minded one humbly gave thanks to his God while the life {of the tree of snakes} [MAN] lasted. And of all men this man loves Mary the most for her help, as was expected; this cleric mended his ways.
