Syngja létu snarpir drengir
sóknar gífr í fleina drífu;
brandar hleyptu ört ór undum
ærnu blóði danskrar þjóðar.
Víða fellu vegnir þollar
(vígadrótt) í reknum flótta
(faldin gekk þar fast at hildi)
frægra málma (ægishjálmi).
Snarpir drengir létu gífr sóknar syngja í drífu fleina; brandar hleyptu ærnu blóði ört ór undum danskrar þjóðar. Þollar frægra málma fellu vegnir víða í reknum flótta; vígadrótt, faldin ægishjálmi, gekk þar fast at hildi.
Brisk warriors made the troll-woman of battle [AXE] sing in the snow-storm of spears [BATTLE]; swords made plenty of blood flow swiftly from the wounds of the Danish people. The fir-trees of famous weapons [WARRIORS] fell slain far and wide in flight; the war-band, hooded with the helmet of terror, pressed on hard in the battle there.
 fast: so all others, ferð F
 fast ‘hard’: F has ‘ferð’ ‘host’ which is hard to make sense of within the helmingr. Ferð gekk þar at hildi ‘the host pressed on in the battle’ is possible, but then it would be difficult to place vígdrótt, faldin ægishjálmi ‘the war-band, hooded with the helmet of terror’. The reading of the other mss solves that problem and is therefore chosen.
