Gamlkan Has 63VII/2 — atferðar ‘life’s course’

Ér látið þau, ýta,
atferðar lok verða,
miskunnandi, minnar,
margríkr, at þér líki,
svát frá yðr í ítru
— oss kjósum þat — ljósi,
veglyndr veðra grundar
valdr, skiljumk ek aldri.

Margríkr miskunnandi ýta, ér látið þau lok atferðar minnar verða, at líki þér, svát ek skiljumk aldri frá yðr í ítru ljósi, veglyndr valdr grundar veðra; kjósum oss þat.

Very powerful pardoner of men [= Christ], you allow the endings of my life’s course to turn out in such a way that it pleases you, so that I will never be parted from you in glorious light, honour-minded ruler of the plain of the winds [SKY/HEAVEN > = God]; we [I] choose that for ourselves [myself].
