Anon Vitn 22VII/5 — gjörði ‘gave’

Varð af vitnisburði
virkur lýðr í kirkju
kveiktr til mestrar mektar
móður guðs að bjóða.
Flokkr gjörði þá þakkir
þannveg allr með svanna:
lofsaung unnu þau ljúfan
list Máríu og Kristi.

Virkur lýðr í kirkju varð kveiktr af vitnisburði að bjóða móður guðs til mestrar mektar. Allr flokkr gjörði þá þakkir með svanna þannveg: þau unnu ljúfan lofsaung list Máríu og Kristi.

The caring people in the church were fired up by the testimony to offer the mother of God [= Mary] the mightiest worship [lit. splendour]. The entire crowd then gave thanks with the woman thus: they made a lovely song of praise artfully [lit. with skill] to Mary and Christ.
