Signað ljós, hinn sæti Jésú,
sannr lífgari dauðra manna,
dragðu mig frá djöfla bygðum,
drottinn blíðr, og halt mier síðan.
Æfinliga með lyftum lófum,
lof ræðandi, á knie sín bæði
skepnan öll er skyld falla,
skapari minn, fyrir ásjón þinni.

 

Blessed light, the sweet Jesus, {true life-giver of dead men}, [= God (= Christ)] draw me from devils’ abodes, gentle Lord, and keep me henceforth. Unceasingly, with lifted hands, uttering praise, all creation should fall on both its knees, my Creator, before your face.

notes: [5-8]: The second repetition of the second stef.

editions: Skj Eysteinn Ásgrímsson: Lilja 63 (AII, 383; BII, 407); Skald II, 222.
