Anon Heil 2VII/4 — drottins ‘of the Lord’

H… fyr höggum þeira
hátt, og síðast skilja mátti,
á hendi fal hann sig helgum anda
hreinn og góðr og drottins móður.
Dæmi þau kvað hinn dýri Tómas
dauða vild og allar nauðir;
svá skýfðu þeir honum af höfði
hallandi sier krúnu alla.

H… hátt fyr höggum þeira, og síðast mátti skilja hann, hreinn og góðr, fal sig á hendi helgum anda og móður drottins. Hinn dýri Tómas kvað þau dæmi dauða og allar nauðir vild; svá skýfðu þeir alla krúnu af höfði honum hallandi sier.

H... loudly under their blows, and at last it was understood [that] he, pure and good, commended himself to the Holy Spirit and the mother of the Lord [= Mary]. The glorious Thomas declared those models of death and all torments [to be] desirable; so they cut his entire tonsure off his head as he bowed himself.
