Anon Mey 1VII/3 — þitt ‘whose’

Heyrðu ómælds himna veldis
herra guð, sem ei má þverra
ríki þitt, fyr miskun mjúka
mærðargrein í kvæði færða.
Til nefnandi ætta eg jafnan
Jésú næst og Máríu hæstri
yfirpostulann æzta lífi
Andréam, þann er guð hefir vandað.

Herra guð ómælds veldis himna, ríki þitt, sem ei má þverra, heyrðu fyr mjúka miskun mærðargrein færða í kvæði. Næst Jésú og hæstri Máríu ætta eg jafnan til nefnandi yfirpostulann, Andréam, æzta lífi, þann er guð hefir vandað.

Lord God of the unmeasured realm of the heavens, whose power [lit. your power which] will never diminish, listen for the sake of your gentle mercy to a portion of praise turned into a poem. After Jesus and the highest Mary I ought always to mention the chief Apostle, Andrew, most outstanding in life, whom God has chosen.
