Anon Brúðv 33VII/2 — himins ‘of heaven’

Oss bjargi Jésús;
ógnframr himins gramr
dýrðar láti vár orð
endaz, meðan veröld stendr,
svá að heim á degi dóms
dróttinn í unaðs gnótt
ýta laði ágætr
alla; það er bragar fall.

Jésús bjargi oss; ógnframr gramr himins láti vár dýrðar orð endaz, meðan veröld stendr, svá að ágætr dróttinn laði alla ýta heim í gnótt unaðs á dóms degi; það er fall bragar.

May Jesus save us; may the ruler of heaven, outstanding [= God] in battle, make our words of glory last as long as the world exists, so that the magnificent Lord may invite all men home to abundance of joy on Judgement Day; that is the end of the poem.
