Vekr, á síðu sækir
sannleiks Pétrum, þannveg,
lýstr, en báðir bresta
brátt sundr fjötrar, dundu.
Flytr með fagnað brautu
fljótt eingill hjálp meingis,
myrkvastofa að merkiz
morni læst in forna.

{Sækir sannleiks} lýstr Pétrum á síðu, vekr þannveg, en báðir fjötrar bresta brátt sundr, dundu. Eingill flytr {hjálp meingis} brautu fljótt með fagnað, að morni merkiz in forna myrkvastofa læst.

{The seeker of truth} [ANGEL] strikes Peter on the side, wakes him that way, and both fetters instantly break asunder; they clattered down. The angel conveys {the help of the multitude} [APOSTLE] away quickly with joy, so that in the morning the ancient prison is found locked.
