Anon Lil 91VII/1 — dýrust ‘the dearest’

Máría, ert þú móðir dýrust;
Máría, lifir þú sæmd í hári;
Máría, ert þú af miskunn kærust;
Máría, liet þú syndafari.
Máría, lít þú mein, þau er vóru,
Máría, lít þú klökk á tárin;
Máría, græð þú mein hin stóru;
Máría, ber þú smyrsl í sárin.

Máría, þú ert dýrust móðir; Máría, þú lifir í hári sæmd; Máría, þú ert kærust af miskunn; Máría, liet þú syndafari. Máría, lít þú mein, þau er vóru; Máría, lít þú klökk á tárin; Máría, græð þú mein hin stóru; Máría, ber þú smyrsl í sárin.

Mary, you are the dearest mother; Mary, you live in high honour; Mary, you are most beloved for your mercy; Mary, halt sinful behaviour. Mary, look at those sins that were; Mary, look tenderly on our tears; Mary, heal the great injuries; Mary, bring balm to our wounds.
