Anon Líkn 4VII/7 — ór ‘from’

Þrifgæðir, lát, þjóðar,
þíns anda mér skína
ástarljós, sem ek æsti,
albjart í sal hjarta,
þat er misverka myrkrum,
munar, hrindi, svá blindi
míns, órlsku túni,
móðs vandliga hrjóði.

Þrifgæðir þjóðar lát albjart ástarljós þíns anda skína mér í hjarta sal, sem ek æsti, þat er hrjóði vandliga myrkrum misverka órlsku túni, hrindi svá blindi míns móðs munar.

Prosperity-endower of the people [= God (= Christ)], let the wholly radiant light of love of your spirit shine in my heart’s hall [BREAST], as I entreat that which may clear away completely the darkness of misdeeds from my field of eloquence [BREAST], [and] so drive out the blindness of my despondent mind.
