GunnLeif Merl I 78VIII (Bret 146)/8 — vitrask ‘are revealed’

‘Sjá þessi rǫk         þrennar aldir,
— þó es lýða ráð         ljótt fyr dróttni —
unz landrekar         Lundúnum í
grafnir ór grundu         gumnum vitrask.

‘Þrennar aldir sjá rǫk þessi — þó es ráð lýða ljótt fyr dróttni —, unz landrekar grafnir ór grundu í Lundúnum vitrask gumnum.

‘Three ages witness these wonders — yet the conduct of men is odious before the Lord —, until kings disinterred from the ground in London are revealed to men.
