Dýrðhittir bað dróttin
dagbœjar sér tœja;
hæst gat hrjóðr við freistni
hugborð móins storðar.
Hlaut, sás œztr es ýta,
íðn Plácitus fríða;
Evstákíus ævi
albazta sér valði.

{Dýrðhittir} bað {dróttin {dagbœjar}} tœja sér; {hrjóðr {storðar móins}} gat {hæst hugborð} við freistni. Plácitus, sás œztr es ýta, hlaut fríða íðn; Evstákíus valði sér albazta ævi.

{The acquirer of glory} [HOLY MAN] bade {the lord {of the daylight-home}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] help him; {the destroyer {of the ground of the serpent}} [GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] received {the highest mind-board} [COURAGE] in the face of trial. Plácitus, who is the best of men, was allotted a glorious task; Eustace chose for himself the very best life.
