Verðrat, blíðr, fyr borði
brjótr, hǫfðingi snóta,

þvít vegskjótum* veita,
veðrs landreka strandar,
vilt, svinn, ok mátt mǫnnum,
móðir, allt it góða.

Brjótr Mistar myrkleygs, sás dýrkar þik, blíðr hǫfðingi snóta, verðrat fyr borði — mjǫk treystumk því —, þvít vilt ok mátt veita vegskjótum* mǫnnum allt it góða, svinn móðir landreka strandar veðrs.

The destroyer of Mist’s <valkyrie> dark flame [SWORD > WARRIOR], who worships you, gentle chief of women, will not be lost — we [I] greatly rely on that — because you are willing and able to grant men, swift in glory, all that is good, wise mother of the land-ruler of the shore of the wind [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ) > = Mary].
