Vítt es orpit
fyr valfalli
rifs reiðiský;
rignir blóði;
nú's fyr geirum
grár uppkominn
vefr, verþjóðar
es vinur fylla.
[rauðum vepti
Randvés bana].

Sjá's orpinn vefr
ýta þǫrmum
ok harðkléaðr
hǫfðum manna;
eru dreyrrekin
dǫrr at skǫptum,
járnvarðr yllir,
en ǫrum hrælaðr.
[skulum slá sverðum
sigrvef þenna].

Sanngríðr, Svipul
sverðum tognum;
skapt mun gnesta,
skjǫldr mun bresta,
mun hjalmgagarr
í hlíf koma.

átti fyrri;
framm skulum ganga
ok í folk vaða,
þars vinir órir
vôpnum skipta.

Þeir munu lýðir

Ok munu Írar

Nú's vefr ofinn,
en vǫllr roðinn;
mun of lǫnd fara
læspjǫll gota.

Nú's ógurligt

dregr með himni;
mun lopt litat
lýða blóði,
es sóknvarðir
syngva kunnu.

Vel kvôðum vér

ok gumum segi.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
