Anon Heil 19VII/7 — dýstum ‘with the most glorious’

Blásíus, þá er vier bjargarlausir
biðjum þig, en dauðans viðjar
vindaz fast að várri öndu,
veit oss það, sem guð hefir heitið.
Skírir menn hjá skapara várum
skína fagrt, er þoldu pínur;
Kristur hefir þá krafti dýstum
kórónað fyr þrautir stórar.

Blásíus, þá er vier bjargarlausir biðjum þig, en viðjar dauðans vindaz fast að várri öndu, veit oss það, sem guð hefir heitið. Skírir menn, er þoldu pínur, skína fagrt hjá várum skapara; Kristur hefir kórónað þá dýstum krafti fyr stórar þrautir.

Blaise, when helpless we ask you, and the ropes of death twist tightly around our soul, grant us that which God has promised. Pure men, who suffered torments, shine brightly with our Creator; Christ has crowned them with the most glorious power for their great struggles.
