Lík hans þeir drógu        á leynigötu
        ok brytjuðu í brunn niðr;
dylja þeir vildu,
        en dróttinn sá
        heilagr himni af.

Þeir drógu lík hans á leynigötu ok brytjuðu niðr í brunn; þeir vildu dylja, en heilagr dróttinn sá af himni.

They dragged his body along a secret path and dismembered it [putting it] down into a well; they wanted to conceal it, but the holy Lord saw it from heaven.
