Anon Mgr 19VII/4 — dróttins ‘of the Lord’

Píndr var Kristur, barðinn og bundinn;
blóðið stökk á Jésús móður;
gjörvöll leit þá sæl og sætust
sárin dróttins blessuð Máría.
Eingis manns fær orkað tunga
jarðligs nein fyrir þjóð að greina
stríð og eymd, er mær og móðir
* mætust bar þá eingla gætis.

Kristur var píndr, barðinn og bundinn; blóðið stökk á móður Jésús; blessuð Máría, sæl og sætust, leit þá gjörvöll sárin dróttins. Nein tunga eingis jarðligs manns fær orkað að greina fyrir þjóð stríð og eymd, er * mætust mær og móðir gætis eingla bar þá.

Christ was tortured, beaten and bound; the blood splattered on the mother of Jesus [= Mary]; blessed Mary, blissful and most sweet, then saw the entire wounds of the Lord. No tongue of any earthly man can manage to explain before people the distress and anguish which the most glorious Virgin and mother of the guardian of angels [= God (= Christ) > = Mary] then bore.
