Anon Pl 37VII/2 — Krists ‘of Christ’

Kvaddi krapti prýddan
Krists rǫdd ara nisti:
‘Dýrð hittir þik dróttins
dygg; skal*a þú nú hryggvask.
Tíð kømr, sóknar seiða
sendir, þér at hendi
enn, sús yðr mun finna
auð ok veg fyr nauðir’.

Rǫdd Krists kvaddi nisti ara, prýddan krapti: ‘Skal*a þú nú hryggvask; dygg dýrð dróttins hittir þik. Tíð kømr enn at hendi þér, sendir seiða sóknar, sús mun finna yðr auð ok veg fyr nauðir’.

The voice of Christ spoke to the feeder of the eagle [WARRIOR], adorned with power: ‘You shall not now be sorrowful; the noble glory of the Lord will come upon you. The time is yet to come for you, mover of the fish of attack [SWORD > WARRIOR], which will bring you riches and honour instead of affliction’.
