Translation (p.4a):

1 This is the beautiful sabbath
The cares of the world will not afflict my breast
But let my heart be uplifted
Like Dafydd’s harp on the festive / Sabbath day;
2 I want nobody but the dear Jesus
To lead me to Paradise above
And the hands that were nailed to the tree [cross]
To open the doors of Holy Heaven
3 The winds are beating me back
And I myself am only weak:
Oh take me Jesus to your embrace
Safely lead me to the shore.
4 Jesus will have praise from henceforth
Instead of the bad word and the mockery he had
And on his head pure glory –
And a shining crown without a single thorn
5 Jesus Christ came to our earth
And with a heart full
Of love for the people of the world
And he died for their sake
