Anon Leið 35VII/2 — dǫglingr ‘the king’

Þats rétt, at dag dróttins
dǫglingr myni hingat
lopts ok lýðum skipta
ljósgims koma af himnum.
Oss skyldi sú aldri
ógnartíð in stríða
— drótt biði sikling sátta
sólvangs — ór hug ganga.

Þats rétt, at dǫglingr lopts ljósgims myni koma hingat af himnum dróttins dag ok skipta lýðum. Sú in stríða ógnartíð skyldi oss aldri ganga ór hug; drótt biði sikling sólvangs sátta.

It is true that the king of the loft of the light-jewel [SUN > SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] will come here from the heavens on the Lord’s day and divide people. That severe time of terror should never go out of our minds; let the people beg the prince of the sun-plain [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] for reconciliation.
