Hraustr vann Hjaltland kristnat
hlífar þeys sem Eyjar
stýrir støkkvifúra
stalls sem Nóreg allan.
Lét á Grœnland gætir
gunnblíðr komit síðan
vengis vallar hringa
vegsamr trúu ramri.

{Hraustr stýrir {stalls {støkkvifúra {þeys hlífar}}}} vann Hjaltland kristnat sem Eyjar, sem allan Nóreg. {Vegsamr, gunnblíðr gætir {vengis {hringa vallar}}} lét síðan komit ramri trúu á Grœnland.

{The bold controller {of the stand {of scattering flames {of the breeze of the shield}}}} [BATTLE > SWORDS > SHIELD > WARRIOR] made Shetland Christian, and the Isles [Orkney], as well as all of Norway. {The glorious, battle-joyful guardian {of the field {of the rings of the plain}}} [SERPENTS > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] then had the powerful faith brought to Greenland.
