Anon Mv I 28VII/3 — bergr ‘save’

Lúta þier í þrautum
þjóðir, dróttins móðir;
bergr þú manni mörgum,
mest þá er þurfa flestir.
Aldri muntu eldi
enn vilja þann brenna
þinn, er þig hefir kunnað
þræl, Máría sæla.

Þjóðir lúta þier í þrautum, móðir dróttins; þú bergr mörgum manni, þá er flestir þurfa mest. Aldri muntu vilja þann þræl þinn, er hefir kunnað þig, enn brenna eldi, sæla Máría.

People bow down to you in distress [lit. distresses], mother of the Lord [= Mary]; you save many a person, when they [lit. most] need it the most. Never will you wish that servant of yours, who has known you, still to burn in fire, blessed Mary.
