As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fagnaðar-söngr (fagnaðar-sǫngr)
- m. a song of joy, Hom. 140, Sks. 754, Stj. 434.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fagnaðar-söngr may be more accurately written as fagnaðar-sǫngr.
