text and translation

Fullr af fagnað öllum
Filippus að guðs vilja
geisli gladdr í píslum
gleði veiti nú sveitum.
Hann laði kall og kvinnu,
krossfestr í veg mestan
sæll til hæstrar hallar
háleitra guðs sveita.
Fari hier með fagnað inni
Filippus postula minni.

Filippus, fullr af öllum fagnað, geisli gladdr í píslum, veiti gleði nú sveitum að guðs vilja. Krossfestr, sæll laði hann kall og kvinnu í mestan veg til hæstrar hallar guðs háleitra sveita. Með fagnað fari hier inni minni postula Filippus.
‘May Philip, full of all joy, a ray of light gladdened in torments, grant joy now to the company with God’s will. Crucified, blessed, may he invite man and woman into the greatest glory to the highest hall of God’s sublime company. With joy let there proceed herein a memorial toast to the Apostle Philip.
