ESk Geisl 42VII/1 — Hô*s ‘of high’

Hô*s lætr helgan ræsi
heims dómari sóma
— fyllir framlyndr stillir
ferð himneska — verðan.
Greitt má gumnum létta
guðs ríðari stríðum;
rǫskr þiggr allt, sem œskir,
Óláfr af gram sólar.

Dómari heims lætr helgan ræsi verðan hô*s sóma; framlyndr stillir fyllir himneska ferð. Guðs ríðari má greitt létta stríðum gumnum; rǫskr Óláfr þiggr allt, sem œskir, af gram sólar.

The judge of the world [= God] causes the holy king to be worthy of high honour; the bold-minded king completes the heavenly band. God’s knight [SAINT = Óláfr] can easily alleviate afflictions for men; brave Óláfr gets all he desires from the king of the sun [= God].
