Réð ek skunda         frá skatna liði,
unz hittak breiða         borg Jórsala,
Þar réð ek allr         í á fara,
ok kunna ek þá         Kristi at þjóna.

Ek réð skunda frá liði skatna, unz hittak breiða Jórsalaborg. Þar réð ek allr fara í á, ok ek kunna þá at þjóna Kristi.

I hurried away from the band of men until I reached wide Jerusalem. There I immersed myself completely in the river, and I was then able to serve Christ.
