text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):

Þar lá njól, sá er nærði,
njótr, allmarga brjóta,
sægs, þá er sjúkir lágu,
sindrs, benloga vindar;
dagr kom, djǫfla sigrir
dáðmildr ok þá vildi
glaðr yfir Gauta fríða
góins skess hafa messu.
