Anon Mdr 7VII/6 — gief ‘give’

Jésú, geym, svá að geystar,
guðs orð, megim forðaz
kvalar þinnar vier þrælar
þrifhróðigrar móður.
Vaktaðu várar sektir
verðlaust, og gief trausta,
heilagr Kristr, í hæstri
himins dýrð gleði fyrðum.

Jésú, geym guðs orð, svá að vier þrælar þrifhróðigrar móður þinnar megim forðaz geystar kvalar. Heilagr Kristr, vaktaðu sektir várar verðlaust, og gief fyrðum trausta gleði í hæstri dýrð himins.

Jesus, keep God’s word, so that we servants of your fortunate mother may escape violent torments. Holy Christ, account our debts discharged, and give men secure bliss in the highest glory of heaven.
