Calon Lân (English Translation)

(A Pure Heart)

I'm not asking for a luxurious life
The world's gold or fine pearls
I'm asking for a happy heart
An honest heart, a pure heart

A pure heart is full of goodness
Lovelier than the fair lilly
Nothing but a pure heart can sing
Singing by day and singing by night

If I wished for worldly wealth
He has a swift seed
The riches of a virtuous, pure heart
Will be a perpetual profit


Late and early my wish
To heaven on wings of song
And to God, for the sake of my Saviour
Give to me a pure heart
