Fylgir himna helgum
hilmi fríður síðan
postuli; prýðir lista
Pétr sannliga mietraz;
Festi hann allar ástir
ielranns við kóng sannan;
varð því valdr af gjörðum
váttr guðdómsins mátta.

Síðan fylgir fríður postuli {helgum hilmi himna}; Pétr mietraz sannliga {prýðir lista}. Festi hann allar ástir við {sannan kóng {ielranns}}; því varð af gjörðum valdr váttr guðdómsins mátta.

Thereafter, the glorious Apostle follows {the holy king of the heavens} [= God (= Christ)]; Peter is truly deemed {an adorner of virtues} [HOLY MAN]. He fixed all his affections on {the true king {of the storm-house}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)]; therefore he became through his deeds the chosen witness of the Godhead’s powers.
