Anon Mv I 17VII/7 — sára ‘dire’

‘Því sótta eg þetta
þitt líkneski að hitta,
mest að, Máría, treystag,
mín, fulltingi þínum.
Aungvan á eg til geingis
annan fæddra manna,
— því er eg sett í sára
sorg — að mier fái borgið.

‘Því sótta eg að hitta þetta líkneski þitt, að, Máría mín, treystag mest fulltingi þínum. Eg á aungvan annan fæddra manna til geingis, að fái borgið mier; því er eg sett í sára sorg.

‘For this reason I came to find this effigy of yours, because, my Mary, I have trusted most of all in your help. I have nobody else among born men for support so that it may save me; therefore I am placed in dire distress.
