Anon Mey 13VII/6 — af ‘from’

Hennar önd í sælu sanna
sannur leiddi hjálpari manna;
páskadag með sætum sigri
sæta guðs fekk virðing mæta.
Magðaléna meiri frægðir
Máría þiggr af drottni várum
nær og firr en neinn megi skýra;
nafn hennar sie blessað jafnan.

Sannur hjálpari manna leiddi hennar önd í sanna sælu; páskadag fekk sæta guðs mæta virðing með sætum sigri. Máría Magðaléna þiggr meiri frægðir af várum drottni nær og firr en neinn megi skýra; hennar nafn sie jafnan blessað.

The true helper of men [= God (= Christ)] led her soul to true bliss; on Easter Day the woman of God [HOLY WOMAN = Mary Magdalene] got precious honour with a sweet victory. Mary Magdalene receives more fame from our Lord near and far than anyone could explain; may her name always be blessed.
