Einkannlig r, mönnum
mest líknar þú flestum;
allra manna í milli
mjúkust ertu sjúkum.
Göfug eik, ger oss mjúka,
greinar lífs, og hreina;
lát oss af greypum glæpum
guði treystandi leysta.

 

Unique maiden, you show mercy exceedingly to most people; among all people, you are most gentle to the sick. Noble oak of life [lit. of the branch of life], make us humble and pure; let us, trusting in God, be released from cruel sins.

notes: The fifth verse of the Lat. reads Virgo singularis, / inter omnes mitis, / nos culpis solutos / mites fac et castos ‘Unique virgin, gentle above all others, make us gentle and pure once we are released from our sins’.
