Anon Heil 5VII/3 — drottni ‘the Lord’

Eina skulu vier Einglands krúnu
upp rísandi heiðra og prísa,
Játmund kóng, er unni drottni
einarðliga með lífi hreinu.
Líkama sinn, er lostann rækir,
leggr í sinn meðal kvenna tveggja;
völdug fljóð í vatnið kalda
vendu honum, þegar freistni kendi.

Skulu vier heiðra og prísa eina upp rísandi krúnu Einglands, Játmund kóng, er einarðliga unni drottni með hreinu lífi. Leggr sinn líkama, er rækir lostann, meðal tveggja kvenna í sinn; völdug fljóð vendu, honum í kalda vatnið, þegar kendi freistni.

We shall honour and praise the one rising crown of England, King Edmund, who sincerely loved the Lord with a pure life. He lays his body, which desires the lust of the flesh, between two women at the same time; the powerful women placed him in cold water when he experienced temptation.
