Anon Vitn 1VII/5 — dróttinn ‘Lord’

Heyrðu til upphafsorða,
alls vinnandi, minna,
þrennr og einn í þinni
þrenning, er guð kenniz.
Láttu, líknar dróttinn,
lausnari minn, af þinni
greiðaz göfgað kvæði,
góðr, háleitri móður.

Heyrðu til upphafsorða minna, vinnandi alls, þrennr og einn í þrenning þinni, er kenniz guð. Dróttinn líknar, góðr lausnari minn, láttu greiðaz göfgað kvæði af háleitri móður þinni.

Listen to my opening words, maker of everything [= God], threefold and one in your Trinity, who is acknowledged as God. Lord of mercy [= God (= Christ)], my good redeemer, let a glorious poem be produced about your exalted mother.
