Anon Mgr 18VII/2 — eingla ‘of angels’

‘Hjálpar fúss, er hiekk á krossi,
hýrliga til mín eingla stýrir
leit og bað mig lietta gráti:
“Lítumz við á deginum þriðja.
Efalaus vertu, að upp mun eg rísa,”
öðlingr talar svá bjartra röðla,
“— móðir, trú því, mín — af dauða;
minnig vertu, að þig skal eg finna.”’

‘Hjálpar fúss, er hiekk á krossi, leit stýrir eingla hýrliga til mín og bað mig lietta gráti: “Við lítumz á deginum þriðja; vertu efalaus, að eg mun rísa upp af dauða,” svá talar öðlingr bjartra röðla, “móðir mín, trú því; vertu minnig, að eg skal finna þig.”’

‘Salvation-eager, as he hung on the Cross, the controller of angels [= God (= Christ)] looked warmly at me and told me to stop the weeping: “We shall see each other on the third day; be without doubt that I will rise up from death,” thus speaks the prince of bright suns [= God (= Christ)], “my mother, believe that; be mindful that I shall find you.”’
