Anon Lil 40VII/4 — landi ‘land’

‘Jésúm tígna eingla rásir
upp og niðr af himni þriðja;
stjörnuljós og færðar fórnir,
friðar samband á hverju landi,
slík afla mier sóttarauka,
sönn stórmerkin veitt hjá mönnum;
kvíðig, að hans remming ráða
ríði mier að báðum síðum.

‘Rásir eingla tígna Jésúm upp og niðr af þriðja himni; stjörnuljós og færðar fórnir, samband friðar á hverju landi, slík sönn stórmerkin veitt hjá mönnum afla mier sóttarauka; kvíðig, að remming ráða hans ríði mier að báðum síðum.

‘Hosts of angels honour Jesus [travelling] up and down from the third heaven; starlight and presented offerings, union of peace in every land, such true signs granted among men cause me an increase of woe; I fear that his strengthening through counsels will press me from all [lit. both] sides.
