Anon Lil 83VII/2 — mitt ‘my’

Lífið sjálft, að luktri æfi
leys mitt bann fyrir iðran sanna;
óléo smurður, vænti, að eg verða
viðrkennandi mjúkleik þenna.
Hreinast gief þú hjarta mínu
hold og blóð, það er tókt af móður,
listuliga að leiðarnesti;
leysiz önd af holdsins böndum.

Lífið sjálft, leys bann mitt að luktri æfi fyrir sanna iðran; smurður óléo, vænti, að eg verða viðrkennandi þenna mjúkleik. Gief þú hjarta mínu hreinast hold og blóð, það er tókt af móður, listuliga að leiðarnesti; leysiz önd af böndum holdsins.

Life itself, loose my ban at the close of my life for the sake of my true repentance; annointed with oil, I hope that I will be in a position to acknowledge this consolation. Give my heart the most pure flesh and blood, which you took from your mother, wonderfully, for Viaticum; may the soul be freed from the bonds of the flesh.

notes

[2] leys mitt bann ‘loose my ban’: Excommunication can be loosed by the absolution of Extreme Unction. Here, the meaning is most likely metaphorical rather than precisely juridical – the speaker is not literally excommunicated, but feels cut off from grace by his sinful life. Cf. 15/2, 64/7 and 80/6.
