Anon Mey 23VII/5 — allra ‘all’

Kátrínu fyr kraft og vitru
keisarinn bauð að vinna dauða;
seggir þá með sverði hjuggu
sæla frú, sem kóngrinn mælir.
Yndis bað hun til allra handa,
elsku fyld, að veitaz skyldi
mönnum þeim, er mintiz hennar,
mey skínandi, í nauðum sínum.

The emperor ordered that Catherine be killed because of her power and wisdom; men then slew the blessed lady with a sword, as the king commands. Filled with love she, the shining maiden, prayed for happiness on all sides, that it should be granted to those people, who remembered her, in their trials.
