Oss giefi Símón sóma
sannheilagr í ranni
píndr á Persiðalandi
postuli hlaðinn af kostum.
Giekk, græddi flekka
góðfúss í blóthúsi
dauða dyrr með náðum;
dýrð hans guði skýrðiz.
Sankte Símóns minni
sie hier vegsamað inni.

 

May the truly holy Simon grant us honour in the house, the Apostle filled with virtues, martyred in the land of Persia. The benevolent one, who healed defects, walked through the doors of death in the heathen temple in peace; his glory was made manifest to God. Let a memorial toast for Saint Simon be celebrated herein.
