Búnir létumz á burt þaðan
brátt ór eyju, þegar byr fengi.
Heilir kómum heim ór þeiri;
gerðu fagna frændr hollvinum.
Létumz brátt búnir þaðan á burt ór eyju, þegar fengi byr. Kómum heilir heim ór þeiri; frændr gerðu fagna hollvinum.
We were ready to go away from there quickly from the island as soon as a favourable wind appeared. We came home unharmed from that [journey]; kinsmen made their loyal friends welcome.
