Dýrðar læt* eg dásemd verðan
Díonísíum guðs vin prísað;
heilagan gerði hinn hæsti Paulus
hann af einum villumanni.
Clémens páfi guðspjalls geymi
Gallíam bauð að kristna alla;
fekk hann það með frægð og lukku,
að Frakkar sneruz til drottins þakka.

Eg læt* prísað Díonísíum, guðs vin, verðan dásemd dýrðar; hinn hæsti Paulus gerði hann heilagan af einum villumanni. Clémens páfi bauð {geymi guðspjalls} að kristna alla Gallíam; með frægð og lukku fekk hann það, að Frakkar sneruz til þakka drottins.

I praise Dionysius, God’s friend, to be [who is] a marvel of glory; the highest Paul turned him into a holy man from a heretic. Pope Clement asked {the guardian of the Gospel} [HOLY MAN] to convert all of Gaul to Christianity; with fame and luck he brought it about that the Franks turned to thanks to [lit. of] the Lord.
