1) My Lord, precious Jesus,
No one is more beloved,
With Him I am no stranger,
And the cross is no burden.

How beautiful is life with Him,
Jesus, Lord of heaven!
He blesses life,
Living with Him is pleasant!
In His protection I live.

2) With vigor my soul tread,
Upon all the lusts,
My beloved is lovely,
Filled with splendor.

3) My pains in the wilderness,
Their number matters not,
In eternal meadows,
The Omnipotent carries me.
