Þinn óð sem ek inni
allskjótt, salar fjalla,
harðla brátt til hróðrar,
harri, munn ok varrar.
Mér gefi dǫglingr dýra
dœmistóls ok sólar,
enn svát ek mega, sanna
orðgnótt, lofa dróttin.

Ek sem inni þinn óð, munn ok varrar, allskjótt, harðla brátt til hróðrar, {harri {salar fjalla}}. {Dǫglingr dœmistóls ok sólar} gefi mér dýra, sanna orðgnótt, svát ek mega enn lofa dróttin.

I arrange your poem inwardly, [and] my mouth and lips very quickly, very briskly for praise, {lord {of the hall of the mountains}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God]. May {the king of the judgement-seat and of the sun} [= God] give me precious, true word-abundance, so that I may again praise the Lord.
