Anon Mdr 6VII/3 — hirðar ‘of the court’

Lýtr Máríu mætri
— mátt hennar guð váttar
dýrð — öll … hirðar
hjörð og fólk á jörðu.
Blíð og blessuð móðir
blóm heilagra dóma
— dugir himna guð gumnum —
gjörvallra má kallaz.

Öll hjörð hirðar … og fólk á jörðu lýtr mætri Máríu; guð váttar mátt hennar dýrð. Blíð og blessuð móðir má kallaz blóm gjörvallra heilagra dóma; guð himna dugir gumnum.

The entire flock of the court … [? > ANGELS] and people on earth bow to excellent Mary; God affirms her power [with] glory. The gentle and blessed mother may be called the flower of all holy judgements; the God of the heavens helps men.
