Ástvin guðs inn æsti,
Andréas, bið eg, að standi,
nefndr, með nógleiks orðum
nafn þitt hjá mier jafnan,
svá að sælli meyju,
sætt hreinlífið, mætti
inna jartegn sanna
áhlýðandi lýðum.

Inn æsti ástvin guðs, nefndr Andréas, eg bið að nafn þitt standi jafnan hjá mier með orðum nógleiks, svá að, sætt hreinlífið, mætti inna lýðum sanna jartegn sælli meyju áhlýðandi.

Noblest bosom-friend of God, named Andrew, I ask that your name always stand by me with words of abundance, so that, sweet virtuousness, I could tell people about a true miracle while the blessed Virgin is listening.
