Hár giefr hjálpir …
heims valdr kyni beima,
Kristr og miskunn mesta,
meginteitum, … veitir.
Lýtr öll veröld ítri
yfirþjóðkonungs móður;
verð er drottning dýrðar
dæmd til efri sæmdar.

{Hár valdr heims} giefr {meginteitum kyni beima} hjálpir … og Kristr veitir mesta miskunn. Öll veröld lýtr {ítri móður yfirþjóðkonungs}; drottning dýrðar er dæmd verð til efri sæmdar.

{The high ruler of the world} [= God] gives {the very glad kinsfolk of men} [MANKIND] … helps … and Christ grants the greatest mercy. The whole world bows down before {the glorious mother of the supreme king <= God>} [= Mary]; the queen of glory is adjudged worthy of very high honour.
