Anon Mey 52VII/1 — gat

Barbara gat frá blótum horfið
blíðufyld og skrýddiz fríðum;
hennar faðir liet sælan svanna
syrgiliga í húsi byrgja.
Kvíðufullu kvalara þjóðir
knífum skáru brjóst af vífi;
Ságu gulls með sverði vágu;
seldiz hun enn í drottins veldi.

Barbara, blíðufyld, gat horfið frá blótum og skrýddiz fríðum; hennar faðir liet sælan svanna syrgiliga byrgja í húsi. Þjóðir kvalara skáru knífum brjóst af kvíðufullu vífi; með sverði vágu Ságu gulls; hun seldiz enn í veldi drottins.

Barbara, full of grace, turned away from sacrifices and adorned herself with virtues; her father had the blessed woman sadly locked in a house. Bands of tormentors cut with knives the breast off the fearful woman; with a sword [they] struck the Sága <goddess> of gold [WOMAN]; she still gave herself into the power of the Lord.
