Borinn var blóms með æru
Bartoloméus að skarta;
Indía liet á landi
lífið, flegið með knífi,
þann er þúsund sinnum
— það er ritningar vitni —
sigrar sæta fegri
sólar guðs fyrir stóli.
Blessi hier blíðr guð inni
Bartoloméus minni.

Bartoloméus var borinn að skarta með blóms æru; liet lífið á Indía-landi flegið með knífi, þann er sigrar þúsund sinnum sæta fegri sólar fyrir stóli guðs; — það er vitni ritningar. Blessi blíðr guð hier inni minni Bartoloméus.

Bartholomew was born to shine with flourishing honour. He laid down his life in the land of India, [his body] flayed by a knife, that one who surpasses a thousand times the sweet beauty of the sun before the throne of God; — that is the testimony of a written text. May gentle God bless herein a memorial toast for Bartholomew.
