Anon Leið 31VII/6 — andi ‘Spirit’

Dag reis sinn með sigri
snjallastr faðir allra
— sonr huggaði seggi
sólar hauðrs — af dauða.
Áðr batt flærðarfróðan
fjanda heilagr andi
fast ok fyrða leysti
fremðarstyrkr ór myrkrum.

Snjallastr faðir allra reis af dauða með sigri dag sinn; sonr hauðrs sólar huggaði seggi. Áðr batt fremðarstyrkr heilagr andi fast flærðarfróðan fjanda ok leysti fyrða ór myrkrum.

The most valiant father of all [= God (= Christ)] rose from death with victory on his day; the son of the land of the sun [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] comforted men. Previously the honour-strong Holy Spirit bound fast the deceit-learned fiend and released men from darkness.
