Máría, gief þú, meyin dýr,
mjúkust, þeim eð er sjúkr,
linun, að laung pín
líði, sú er vár bíðr,
því að ór heimi, hæst blóm,
hieðan, trúi eg, oss kveðr
sannur guð sonr þinn;
sálum hjálpi þitt mál.

Mjúkust Máría, gief þú, dýr meyin, linun, þeim eð er sjúkr, að laung pín, sú er bíðr vár, líði, því að, hæst blóm, sannur guð, sonr þinn, kveðr oss hieðan ór heimi, trúi eg; mál þitt hjálpi sálum.

Gentlest Mary, give, precious Virgin, comfort to the one who is sick, so that the long torment which awaits us may pass, because, highest blossom, the true God, your son, will call us away from this world, I believe; may your plea help souls.
