Anon Lil 99VII/7 — ván ‘hope’

Sannri ást af sætu brjósti
sinni riett fyrir hjálp og minni
segi Máríu hverr, er heyrir
hennar vess, á diktan þessa,
því vera kann, að mærin minniz
mín, þá er liggi eg kvaldr í pínum;
berr mig þar til ván, á vörrum
víst ef lieki dominus tecum.

Sannri ást af sætu brjósti, fyrir hjálp sinni og minni, segi hverr, er heyrir á þessa diktan, riett Máríu hennar vess, því vera kann, að mærin minniz mín, þá er eg liggi kvaldr í pínum; ván berr mig þar til, ef Dominus tecum lieki víst á vörrum.

With true love from a sweet breast, for the sake of his own salvation and mine, may whoever listens to this poem say clearly to Mary her verse, because it can happen that the maid will remember me, when I lie plagued by torments; I have hope of that, if Dominus tecum ‘The Lord is with you’ certainly plays on my lips.
