Sviftir framdi saung oft
— svá höfum spurt frá —
linna til lofs enn
Lista við höll Krist,
því að tíðir blikbjóðr
brúði með ástúð
fjarðar, þeirri er fremst er,
fagrar saung hvern dag.

{Sviftir {Lista linna}} framdi enn oft saung til lofs við {höll Krist} — svá höfum frá spurt —, því að {{fjarðar blik}bjóðr} saung fagrar tíðir með ástúð hvern dag þeirri brúði, er fremst er.

{The hurler {of the Lista of snakes}} [GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] still often performed a song in praise of {the hall of Christ} [= Mary] — so we [I] have heard tell —, because {the giver {of the gleam of the fjord}} [(lit. ‘gleam-giver of the fjord’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] sang beautiful services with love each day, for the bride who is the most outstanding.
