    • Á Sprengisandi (“On Sprengisandur”) by Grímur Thomsen
      Ríðum, ríðum og rekum yfir sandinn,
      rennur sól á bak við Arnarfell,
      hér á reiki er margur óhreinn andinn,
      úr því fer að skyggja á jökulsvell;
      Drottinn leiði drösulinn minn,
      drjúgur verður síðasti áfanginn.
      Ride, ride, ride hard across the sands,
      the sun is settling behind Arnarfell.
      Here many spirits of the dark
      threaten in the gloom over the glacier's ice.
      The Lord leads my horse,
      it is still a long, long way home.
