Anon Mey 18VII/6 — Cécílía ‘Cecilia’

Heimrinn norðr og heilög Róma
huggan fær af meyju skærri;
sjá var fyst í sætu lífi
svanni giftur heiðnum manni.
Valeriánum sjálf í sælu
Cécílía leiddi blessuð;
unni hann guði og jafnvel henni;
einn græðara lofuðu bæði.

Norðr heimrinn og heilög Róma fær huggan af skærri meyju; sjá svanni var í sætu lífi fyst giftur heiðnum manni. Blessuð Cécílía leiddi sjálf Valeriánum í sælu; hann unni guði og jafnvel henni; bæði lofuðu einn græðara.

The northern world and holy Rome receive comfort from a bright maiden; that woman was in her sweet life first married to a heathen man. The blessed Cecilia herself led Valerian to bliss; he loved God and her equally; both praised one Saviour.


[6] Cécílía: ‘Secilía’ 713
