O my deir heart
English source: Wedderburn Brothers

O my deir heart, young Jesus sweit,
Prepare thy creddil in my spreit,
And I shall rock thee in my heart
And never mair from thee depart.

But I shall praise thee evermoir
With sangis sweit unto thy gloir;
The knees of my heart shall I bow,
And sing that richt Balulalow!

_based on the German by_
_Martin Luther (1483 - 1546)_
