Sárfeinginn hug særir
sótt hjarðreka dróttins;
*eldi í gegn fyr gildan
gleði tárkveiktan steðja.
Ástkennis fyr innan
angr hjartrót*um stangaz,
meistara síns að misti
mætr kinnroða gætir.

Sótt særir sárfeinginn hug {hjarðreka dróttins}; *eldi í gegn fyr gildan {steðja gleði tárkveiktan}. Angr stangaz hjartrót*um {ástkennis} fyr innan, að {mætr gætir kinnroða} misti síns meistara.

Anguish afflicts the pain-stricken heart {of the shepherd of the Lord} [APOSTLE]; it has kindled through and through for the excellent [man] his {anvil of joy [which has been] moved to tears} [HEART]. Grief pierces the heart-roots {of the teacher of love} [APOSTLE] inwardly, because {the worthy possessor of shame} [HOLY MAN] has lost his master.
