text and translation

Ey mun uppi
Endils, meðan stendr
sólborgar salr,
svǫrgœðis fǫr.
Þú hefr í vátri,
vegsamr, þvegizk,
geirs gnýstœrir,
gráns, Jórðáni.

Fǫr {{Endils svǫr}gœðis} mun ey uppi, meðan {salr {sólborgar}} stendr. {Vegsamr {gráns geirs gný}stœrir}, þú hefr þvegizk í vátri Jórðáni.
 
‘The journey of the fattener of Endill’s <sea-king’s> bird [(lit. ‘bird-fattener of Endill’) RAVEN/EAGLE > WARRIOR] will always be remembered as long as the hall of the sun’s stronghold [SKY/HEAVEN > EARTH] remains. Glorious increaser of the clash of the grey spear [(lit. ‘clash-increaser of the grey spear’) BATTLE > WARRIOR], you have washed yourself in the watery River Jordan.
