Anon Mey 50VII/6 — drottins ‘of the Lord’

Sóma vann í sínum dæmum
signað fljóð, er Skotland tignar;
Brígiða hielt frá bernsku dægri
blóm greinanda meydóm hreinum.
Skifti hun því, sem æ var eftir,
jafnan heilt í drottins nafni;
ástrík var hun fyr einu klaustri
abbadís með heiðri vísum.

Signað fljóð, er Skotland tignar, vann sóma í sínum dæmum; Brígiða, greinanda blóm, hielt frá bernsku dægri hreinum meydóm. Hun skifti jafnan heilt því, sem æ var eftir, í nafni drottins; ástrík var hun abbadís fyr einu klaustri með vísum heiðri.

The consecrated woman, whom Scotland praises, achieved honour by her good examples; Brigid, an exuberant flower, preserved from childhood her pure virginity. She always completely divided that which always remained behind in the name of the Lord; full of love she was abbess of a monastery with certain esteem.
