Anon Leið 26VII/3 — lýð ‘people’

Sýndi sólar landa
siklingr með trú mikla
horskum lýð á hauðri
hreinn skjótar jarteinir.
Frítt gerði dag dróttins
dáðfimr jǫfurr himna
vín ór vatni einu;
varð þjóð fegin harðla.

Hreinn siklingr landa sólar sýndi horskum lýð á hauðri skjótar jarteinir með mikla trú. Dáðfimr jǫfurr himna gerði frítt vín ór vatni einu dróttins dag; þjóð varð harðla fegin.

The pure prince of the lands of the sun [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] showed wise people on earth swift miracles with great faith. The deed-agile prince of the heavens [= God (= Christ)] made beautiful wine out of water alone on the Lord’s day; people became very happy.
