Anon Mdr 42VII/1 — dýrðar ‘of glory’

Heil vertu, drottning dýrðar,
dags *önn valin mönnum,
líknar rót og læknir,
lýðs vegr, gift og prýði.
Heitir þú stígi og stræti
styrkr til ljóss frá myrkrum
grundvöllr gæzku allrar
gimsteinn konungs himna.

Heil vertu, drottning dýrðar, valin *önn dags mönnum, rót líknar og læknir, vegr lýðs, gift og prýði. Þú heitir stígi og styrkr stræti til ljóss frá myrkrum, grundvöllr allrar gæzku, gimsteinn konungs himna.

Hail to you, queen of glory, chosen as light’s vestibule for men, root of mercy and healer, mankind’s glory, gift and adornment. You are called a ladder and a strong road to light from darkness, the foundation of all mercy, jewel of the king of the heavens [= God (= Christ)].
