Anon Leið 36VII/7 — dróttins ‘lord’

Dag metr sinn at sǫnnu
snjallastr konungr allra
eljunkuðr of aðrar
alfríðar hátíðir.
Dýrka dýrligs verka
dáðsterks hǫfuðmerki
— rétt segjum — dag dróttins
drjúgmǫrg himintǫrgu.

Snjallastr konungr allra, eljunkuðr, metr dag sinn at sǫnnu of aðrar alfríðar hátíðir. Drjúgmǫrg hǫfuðmerki verka dýrka dag dýrligs dáðsterks dróttins himintǫrgu; segjum rétt.

The most valiant king of all [= God], known for his energy, rates his day in truth higher than other most glorious festivals. Very numerous chief testimonies of deeds [HOLY WRITINGS] celebrate the day of the glorious, deed-strong lord of the heaven-shield [SKY/HEAVEN > = God]; we [I] tell it correctly.
