Lôgu lymsku-drjúgir
lundrǫkkum Guðmundi
hjǫrva éls á halsi
herðendr of skapferði;
nú hafa randviðir reyndan,
ríkmenni veldr brennu,
œsirunn of annat
eggþeys an kjarkleysi.

Letk geðsnara gotna
(grænisk friðr) at ræna,
lítt mun bǫl at bœttra,
búandmenn of dal þenna;
en ef aptr koma sunnan
unndýrs of Kjǫl runnar,
þá's snarræða síðan
seggjum þǫrf at eggja.

Vist es hér með hraustum
hróðrfingin gœðingi;
nýta sér til slátra
seggir mart at leggja;
heimkynni munu hreinni
hafa opt verit, þoptu
Freyr strýkr fasta ôrum
flóð bundins, Guðmundar.

Báls kveðr hlynr at Hólum
hvern mann vesa í banni
Gylfa láðs, þanns greiðir,
geðrakkr, fyr mér nakkvat;
trautt kann hóf, sás háttar,
hoddlestir, vel flestu,
meðr eru af því aðrir
ósælir, stórmæla.

Bannar byskup mǫnnum,
berr stríð af því víða
lýða kind á láði
lǫngum kirkju-gǫngur;
geystr mun gegn at flestu
Guðmundr fara of stundir;
trautt mák enn fyr annan
enda sjá hvar lendir.

Ara vill Guðmundr gǫrvask
glíkr Tómási at ríki,
nær liggr okkr við eyra,
erfingi hǫfðingja;
ræðr guðs laga greiðir
geðbjartr snǫru hjarta;
hræðisk himna prýði
hann, en vætki annat.

Heyr himna smiðr,
hvers skáldit biðr;
komi mjúk til mín
miskunnin þín;
því heitk á þik,
þú hefr skaptan mik;
ek em þrællinn þinn,
þú 'st dróttinn minn.

Goð, heitk á þik,
at grœðir mik;
minzk mildingr mín,
mest þurfum þín;
ryð þú rǫðla gramr,
ríklyndr ok framr,
hǫlds hverri sorg
ór hjarta borg.

Gæt, mildingr, mín,
mest þurfum þín
helzt hverja stund
á hǫlða grund;
sett, meyjar mǫgr,
máls-efni fǫgr,
ǫll es hjôlp af þér,
í hjarta mér.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

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.
