Anon Mgr 1VII/7 — dróttins ‘of the lord’

Orðin gief þú mjög til mærðar,
minn lausnari, skáldi þínu,
þinnar móður mildi kunnrar,
mála örr, og hjálpa sálu.
Eini sýndir þú Áróns frænda;
aldri brann þó viðrinn kaldi;
lát þú kveikjaz lágina dróttins
leiftra skríns í hjarta mínu.

Lausnari minn, örr mála, gief þú mjög skáldi þínu orðin til mærðar móður þinnar, kunnrar mildi, og hjálpa sálu. Þú sýndir Áróns frænda eini; þó brann viðrinn kaldi aldri; lát þú lágina dróttins leiftra skríns kveikjaz í hjarta mínu.

My redeemer, generous with speech, give abundantly to your poet the words for the praise of your mother, renowned for mercy, and save the soul. You showed the juniper to Aaron’s kinsman [= Moses]; yet the cold bush was never consumed [lit. never burned]; let the log of the lord of lightnings’ shrine [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] be kindled in my heart.



case: gen.
