Anon Mgr 16VII/7 — dýrð ‘glory’

Stillir, heyrðu, störnuhallar;
stef væri eg þier búinn að færa
einkar mætt, ef eg má hitta
orðagnótt að vilja dróttins.
Öllum hlutum er æðri og sælli
eilífligastr skepnu deilir;
honum sie dýrð á himni og jörðu;
hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

Heyrðu, stillir störnuhallar; eg væri búinn að færa þier einkar mætt stef, ef eg má hitta orðagnótt að vilja dróttins. Eilífligastr deilir skepnu er æðri og sælli öllum hlutum; dýrð sie honum á himni og jörðu; hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

Listen, lord of the star-hall [SKY/HEAVEN > = God]; I would be ready to bring you an extremely splendid refrain, if I can find a richness of words according to the Lord’s will. The most eternal ordainer of creation [= God] is more distinguished and blessed than all things; glory be to him in heaven and on earth; he is higher than everything else.
