Víst trú varðmaðr lýsti
várr, er giekk á bárum;
ván tárblómguð vænust
varð yfir neiting harðri.
Ást, þóað andar misti,
ítr kvaz mundu níta
aldri skýja skjaldar
skjöldungi þegn jungum.

Víst lýsti várr varðmaðr trú, er giekk á bárum; vænust ván varð tárblómguð yfir harðri neiting. Ítr þegn kvaz aldri mundu níta ást {jungum skjöldungi {skjaldar skýja}}, þóað andar misti.

Certainly our guardian showed faith when he walked on the waves; most promising hope became adorned with tears on account of hard denial. The glorious man said that he would never deny his love {for the young king {of the shield of the clouds}} [SUN > = God (= Christ)], though he should lose his life.
