Anon Pl 46VII/3 — aldar ‘of the age’

Dýrr es himna harri;
hann eignask veg sannan;
aldrgǫfgu ræðr aldar
aflsteldr … veldi.
Lýtr engla lið ítrum
angrhrjóðanda ok þjóðir;
einn es ǫllu hreinni,
allt gótt sás skóp, dróttinn.

Harri himna es dýrr; hann eignask sannan veg; ræðr aflsteldr aldrgǫfgu … veldi aldar. Lið engla ok þjóðir lýtr ítrum angrhrjóðanda; einn dróttinn, sás skóp allt gótt, es ǫllu hreinni.

The king of the heavens [= God] is glorious; he gains true honour; he rules, mighty, over the age-noble …-power of the age. The band of angels and humankind bows to the glorious sin-destroyer [= God]; the one Lord, who created everything good, is purer than all.
