Anon Hsv 78VII/5 — trú ‘believe’

Búinn við meinum        skal bragna hverr,
        þótt gangi at óskum alt;
sterklig stríð,        trú ek, standaz megi
        hverr, er þeira bíðr búinn.

Hverr bragna skal búinn við meinum, þótt alt gangi at óskum; ek trú hverr megi standaz sterklig stríð, er þeira bíðr búinn.

Every man must be prepared for misfortunes, although everything goes as wished; I believe everyone can endure serious calamities who waits prepared for them.


[5] trú: hyggz 624
