A fragment of a song from Foula

 
Norn Old Norse/Nordic English
I have malt (mālət, mæ'lt) mældra min (mældrən)
I have sūpət ūsən (pōpət pōsən)
εndə sēvə de sədə lin (or: a'ntə ligə de sødə min or lin)
and dēnə (-a) komənə (-a) lūsa (ljūs).
Ek hef malit meldra mínn (or meldrann)
ek hef sópat húsin;
ennþá sefr (søfr) (liggr) þat sœta lín (hin sœta mínn)
ok dagrinn er kominn í ljós.
