Kvinna var með heiti hennar
henni kær og drottni skærum;
mildliga skal sú Máría kallaz;
Magðaléna jafnan sagðiz.
Fyst var þessi full af löstum;
fann hun Krist í vænu ranni;
gjörði hann hana með einu orði
alprúðastan gimstein brúða.

Kvinna var með hennar heiti, kær henni og skærum drottni; mildliga skal sú Máría kallaz, Magðaléna jafnan sagðiz. Fyst var þessi full af löstum; hun fann Krist í vænu ranni; með einu orði gjörði hann hana alprúðastan gimstein brúða.

There was a woman with her name, dear to her and to the bright Lord; graciously she shall be called Mary; she always named herself Magdalene. First she was full of vices; she found Christ in a beautiful house; with one word he made her the finest gem among women.
