Anon Líkn 46VII/2 — öðlingr ‘the prince’

Minnumz á hvat unni
öðlingr í píningu
árs, þá er orð slík heyrum,
oss deyjandi á krossi.
Leiðum hörð á hauðri
hjarta várs með tárum,
systkin mín, fyr sjónir
siðgætis meinlæti.

Minnumz á, þá er heyrum slík orð, hvat öðlingr árs, deyjandi á krossi, unni oss í píningu. Systkin mín, leiðum hörð meinlæti siðgætis á hauðri fyr várs hjarta sjónir með tárum.

Let us remember, when we hear such words, how the prince of the year’s abundance [= Christ], dying on the Cross, loved us in his Passion. My brothers and sisters, let us bring the hard torments of the faith-guardian [= God (= Christ)] on earth before our heart’s eyes with tears.
