text and translation

Bíðr allskonar œðri
— øruggt mælik þat — sælu
dýrðar váttr með dróttni
dyggr, an þjóð of hyggi,
þvít lausnara lýsir
(liðs valdr) numinn aldri
vinr (firði sik synðum)
slík verk á jarðríki.

{Dyggr váttr dýrðar} bíðr með dróttni allskonar sælu, œðri an þjóð of hyggi — øruggt mælik þat —, þvít {vinr lausnara}, numinn aldri, lýsir slík verk á jarðríki; valdr liðs firði sik synðum.
 
‘The valiant witness of glory [MARTYR] experiences with the Lord all kinds of blessedness, higher than people can imagine — I say that fearlessly —, because the friend of the Saviour [SAINT], taken from life, proclaims such works in the earthly kingdom; the ruler of men kept himself from sin.
