Möðruvallakirkja

at Mödruvellir in Hörgárdalur-walley in N-Iceland. Built 1865-67.

 

Inscription on gate:

 

Jurtagarður er Herrans hér, /Here's a garden of thy Lord,

helgra guðsbarna legstaðir. /His holy childrens' resting place.

Þegar þú gengur um þennan reit, /When you gently on it thread

þín sé til reiðu bænin heit: /prepare a prayer in your head:

andláts þíns gæt og einnig þá /reflect about your coming death,

upprisudaginn minnstu á. /resurrection do not forget.

 

Rev. Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614-1674)
