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.

 

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.
