Hann veitti birtu á báðar hendur
Um bæinn sérhvert kvöld
Hann luktar-Gvendur á liðinni öld

Á gráum hærum gloggt var kenndur
Við glampa á ljósafjöld
Hann luktar-Gvendur á liðinni öld

Hann heyrðist ganga hægt og hljótt
Um hverja götu fram á nott
Hans hjarta sá með bros á brá

Ef ungan svein og yngismey
Hann aðeins sá, hann kveikti ei
En eftirlét þeim rókkur skuggablá

Í endur minning æskutið
Hann aftur leit, en ástmey blið
Hann örmum vafði fast, svo ung og smá

Hann veitti birtu á bádar hendur
Um bæinn sérhvert kvöld
Hann luktar Gvendur á liðinni öld

<lyrics>
He brought light in both his hands
Around the town each night
Lamplighter-Gvendur from long long ago

By his grey hair he was known
Gleaming by the lantern's light
Lamplighter-Gvendur from long long ago

He could be heard walking calmly and quietly
Down every street during the night
His heart would smile with joy

If a young boy and girl
He saw, he would not light his lamp
Leaving them in the shade of darkness

And he reminisced about his youth
And he looked back on his sweet love
When he hugged tight his sweet young girl

He brought light in both his hands
Around the town each night
Lamplighter-Gvendur from long long ago
