Sál hans bað        inn sanni guð
        í sinn fögnuð fara;
en sökudólgar
        hygg ek síðla myni
        kallaðir frá kvölum.

Inn sanni guð bað sál hans fara í fögnuð sinn; en ek hygg sökudólgar myni síðla kallaðir frá kvölum.

The true God commanded his soul to journey into his joy; but I think that his enemies will be summoned late from torments.
