Eitt Sinn Skal Hverr Deyja

Upp skalt á kjǫl klífa,
kǫld er sjávar drífa
kostaðu hug Þinn at herða
hér muntu lífit verða
 
Skafl heygj-at-tu skalli,
þótt skúr á Þik falli,
ást hafðir Þú meyja --
eitt sinn skal hver deyja

Every Man Will Die One Day

You must climb up to the keel,
cold blows the sea spray,
strive to harden your spirit
here you may lose your life
 
Do not grimace,
though showers upon you may fall,
and may you have love from maidens --
every man will die one day
 
Thanks!
