Anon Nkt 31II/2 — ræsir ‘the ruler’

Þá bar raun,
at ræsir vas
Kristi kærr,
um konung helgan.
Stendr í Krists
kirkju miðri
heilagt skrín
of Haralds arfa.

Þá bar raun um helgan konung, at ræsir vas kærr Kristi. Í miðri Kristskirkju stendr heilagt skrín of arfa Haralds.

Then there was true testimony concerning the holy king, that the ruler was dear to Christ. In the middle of Kristkirken a holy shrine stands over Haraldr’s heir [= Óláfr].
