Original text and translations

Avec le jour commence ta journée
De l'Eternel le sainct nom bénissant
Le soir aussi ton labeur finissant
Louë le encor' et passe ainsi l'année.

Spanish.png Spanish translation

Con el día empieza la jornada eterna
del bendito nombre santo.
La tarde acaba tu tarea
y así se pasa el año.

Translation by Javiproxing

Rise with the sun and so begin your day,
Blessing, as you do, God's holy name;
Your day's work done, again do it proclaim;
Continue all the year the selfsame way.
