Ik heb de Engelse vertaling gevonden. Best goed. Als het belangrijk is kan ik de tekst wel vertalen! Laat het even horen:
A friendly green does richly dress.
The rich dress of friendly [lush] verdure
has adorned dale and meadow.
Now the mild breezes gently touch
the lovely herb fields.
And the light of the sun
And the whispering of the grove
And the murmur of waves against willow
Proclaim that summer time is here
Their happiness and their summer calm
the whirling birds are praising.
From the bushes of the woods, from their quiet nests
their songs are resounding.
A hymn is sent towards the sky
Of delight and hope
From their happy new compositions
From the flowers and trees
But you, oh God, who makes our world
so fair in summer moments.
Make it so that first I guard and appreciate your word
and your wondrous acts of grace.
All flesh is hay
And the flowers die
And Time drives everything away
Only the words of our Lord remain
