Note to Anon Eccl 1VII

[5-6]: The poet beseeches God to bestow faith upon ‘Audoenus’ (ON Auðunn). Kålund takes these ll. to refer to the poem’s intended recipient, perhaps Auðunn Þorbergsson ( III, 64 n. 4), but it is conceivable that Audoenus is the name of the poet himself, who beseeches God for a share of the grace that has already been granted to the unidentified recipient of his praise.
