Anon Mey 3VII/4 — af ‘from’

Sjá er prýðilig umfram aðrar
ástvinnandi drottins kvinnur,
þvíað riettlætis sólin settiz;
sjálf þrenningin skein af henni.
Hennar nafn er hverjum manni
hjartaligt fyr miskunn bjarta;
mildliga bergr hun jafnskjótt öllum,
allir senn þótt Máríam kalli.

Sjá er prýðilig umfram aðrar ástvinnandi kvinnur drottins, þvíað sólin riettlætis settiz; þrenningin sjálf skein af henni. Hennar nafn er hjartaligt hverjum manni fyr bjarta miskunn; hun bergr mildliga öllum jafnskjótt, þótt allir kalli Máríam senn.

She is splendid above other charitable women of the Lord, because the sun of justice was established; the Trinity itself shone from her. Her name is dear to every person because of her bright mercy; she graciously saves all people equally fast, even though all might call upon Mary simultaneously.
