Anon Mv I 27VII/7 — þínum ‘in your’

Heyrði sveit, að, sæta
sæt, leystir þú mætrar
hold ór heitum eldi,
hlífandi svá lífi.
minnztu, minnandi mestrar,
meyja guðs, þá er deyjum,
þínum björtum bænum
bál v várum sálum.

Heyrði sveit, að þú, sæt sæta, leystir hold mætrar ór heitum eldi, svá hlífandi lífi. Meyja guðs, minnandi mestrar, minnztu björtum bænum þínum bál v sálum várum, þá er deyjum.

The crowd heard that you, sweet lady, released the flesh of the splendid one from the hot fire, thus protecting [her] life. Virgin of God [= Mary], while remembering the greatest one, remember in your bright prayers the fire directed at our souls when we die.
