Anon Mgr 24VII/2 — dróttin ‘retinue’

Guðs sonar minniz dráps og dauða
dróttin skírð við hrygð og ótta
frjádag hvern með vándra vörnun
verka í saung og tárum sterkum.
Öllum hlutum er æðri og sælli
eilífligastr skepnu deilir;
honum sie dýrð á himni og jörðu;
hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

Skírð dróttin minniz dráps og dauða sonar guðs í saung við hrygð og ótta hvern frjádag með vörnun vándra verka og sterkum tárum. Eilífligastr deilir skepnu er æðri og sælli öllum hlutum; dýrð sie honum á himni og jörðu; hann er hæri en gjörvalt annað.

May the baptised retinue recall the killing and death of the son of God [= Christ] in song with sorrow and fear every Friday, with avoidance of wicked deeds and with vigorous tears. The most eternal ordainer of creation [= God] is more distinguished and blessed than all things; glory be to him in heaven and on earth; he is higher than everything else.
