Anon Leið 40VII/8 — getr ‘obtains’

Kostum allir æsta
oss at helgum krossi
kœnir menn, sem kunnum,
Krist eilífrar vistar.
Staðr es ǫllum œðri
— óttalaus með dróttni
þjóð lifir glǫð, sús gœði*
getr — munligri ok betri.

Allir kœnir menn, sem kunnum, kostum æsta Krist oss eilífrar vistar at helgum krossi. Staðr es ǫllum œðri, munligri ok betri; glǫð þjóð, sús getr gœði*, lifir óttalaus með dróttni.

Let all wise men, as we are able, strive to ask Christ for an eternal abode for ourselves beside the holy Cross. That place is higher, more desirable and better than all; the happy [group of] people that obtains good things will live fearlessly with the Lord.
