Anon Mgr 47VII/1 — vel ‘good’

‘Gjör svá vel,’ kvað göfgust Máría,
‘gleði mig þjóð með eingils kveðju;
langar mig til, að á lýða tungu
lieki jafnan Dóminus técum.
Lítið hier, að laun á móti
lúkaz skulu, ef beðið er sjúkum
himna gæti heilsubótar;
heiti eg yðr, að líkn skal veita.’

‘Gjör svá vel,’ kvað göfgust Máría, ‘þjóð gleði mig með kveðju eingils; langar mig til, að “Dóminus técum” lieki jafnan á lýða tungu. Lítið hier, að laun skulu lúkaz á móti, ef er beðið gæti himna heilsubótar sjúkum; eg heiti yðr, að skal veita líkn.’

‘Be so good,’ said most excellent Mary, ‘may men please me with the greeting of the angel [= Hail Mary]; I long that “the Lord is with you” shall always play on people’s tongue. See here, that rewards shall be paid in return, if people pray [lit. it is prayed] to the guardian of the heavens [= God (= Christ)] for a cure for the sick; I promise you that [he] shall grant mercy.’
