Lítr á sitt, og sýtir,
sár neitingar, tárum
beiskum; beygir röskvan
bland iðranar vandað.
Grátrinn græddi Pétrum;
— guð veldr — líkt sem í eldi
skærr af skugga fyrri
skein sem gullið hreina.

Lítr á sitt sár neitingar og sýtir beiskum tárum; vandað bland iðranar beygir röskvan. Grátrinn græddi Pétrum; guð veldr; skein sem gullið hreina, líkt sem skærr í eldi af fyrri skugga.

He looks at his wound of denial and grieves with bitter tears; a careful mixture of repentance overcomes the valiant man. The weeping healed Peter; God causes [that]; he shone like the pure gold, as if purified in fire from the former shadow.
