- Sad is that, O swineherd of Moling,
thou hast wrought a wilful, sorry deed,
woe to him who has slain by dint of his strength
the king, the saint, the saintly madman.
- Evil to thee will be the outcome therefrom
going at last without repentance
thy soul will be in the devils keeping,
thy body will be
- In Heaven the same will be the place
for me and for him, O man,
psalms will be sung by fasting folk
for the soul of the true guest.
- He was a king, he was a madman,
a man illustrious, noble, was he;
there is his gravebright festival
pity for him has rent my heart.
