Árstíðir – Heyr himna smiður (Hear, smith of the heavens)

Heyr, himna smiður,                    Hear, smith of the heavens,
hvers skáldið biður.                      what the poet asks.
Komi mjúk til mín                         May softly come unto me
miskunnin þín.                               thy mercy.
Því heit eg á þig,                            So I call on thee,
þú hefur skaptan mig.                  for thou hast created me.
Eg er þrællinn þinn,                      I am thy slave,
þú ert drottinn minn.                   thou art my Lord.

Guð, heit eg á þig,                         God, I call on thee
að þú græðir mig.                          to heal me.
Minnst þú, mildingur, mín,          Remember me, mild one,
mest þurfum þín.                          Most we need thee.
Ryð þú, röðla gramur,                  Drive out, O king of suns,
ríklyndur og framur,                    generous and great,
hölds hverri sorg                           human every sorrow
úr hjartaborg.                                from the city of the heart.

Gæt þú, mildingur, mín,              Watch over me, mild one,
mest þurfum þín,                         Most we need thee,
helzt hverja stund                        truly every moment
á hölda grund.                              in the world of men.          
Send þú, meyjar mögur,             send us, son of the virgin,
málsefnin fögur,                           good causes,
öll er hjálp af þér,                        all aid is from thee,
í hjarta mér.                                 in my heart.
