Anon Pét 43VII/2 — dróttins ‘of the Lord’

Sárfeinginn hug særir
sótt hjarðreka dróttins;
*eldi í gegn fyr gildan
gleði tárkveiktan steðja.
Ástkennis fyr innan
angr hjartrót*um stangaz,
meistara síns að misti
mætr kinnroða gætir.

Sótt særir sárfeinginn hug hjarðreka dróttins; *eldi í gegn fyr gildan steðja gleði tárkveiktan. Angr stangaz hjartrót*um ástkennis fyr innan, að mætr gætir kinnroða misti síns meistara.

Anguish afflicts the pain-stricken heart of the shepherd of the Lord [APOSTLE]; it has kindled through and through for the excellent [man] his anvil of joy [which has been] moved to tears [HEART]. Grief pierces the heart-roots of the teacher of love [APOSTLE] inwardly, because the worthy possessor of shame [HOLY MAN] has lost his master.
