‘Hræzkat vǫrðr, þótt verðir,
— vest traustr ok ger hraustla —
fremðar lystr, í freistni,
fránskíðs, af mér, Vánar.
Þinn mun huggun hreinni,
hers skins, trega minka,
enn skalt, ôrr, til þinnar
ástskýrðr koma dýrðar.’

 

Do not fear, {glory-desiring keeper {of the shining ski of Vôn}}, [SHIP > SEAFARER] even though you come into trial through me; be confident and act bravely. With pure consolation I will lessen your sorrow; {messenger {of the shine of war}}, [SWORD > WARRIOR] yet you shall come, purified by love, to your glory.’
