Metr líkn guðs og ljótan
löst* sinn vánar trausti
smurðr af greina garði
gegn brásteina regni.
Enn frá öðrum mönnum
allþrútinn fór úti
angrs; var einn í gaungu
ótt til grafar dróttins.

Gegn, smurðr {regni {brásteina}} af {garði greina}, metr guðs líkn og ljótan löst* sinn trausti vánar. Enn allþrútinn angrs fór úti frá öðrum mönnum; einn var í gaungu ótt til grafar dróttins.

The upright man, anointed {with rain {of eyelash-stones}} [EYES > TEARS] from {the enclosure of wits} [BREAST], considers God’s mercy and his own ugly sin with the support of hope. Still swollen with grief, he was walking outside, away from other men; alone he made his way quickly to the Lord’s grave.
