At the wedding which was in Cana, the God of Graces was there in person,
Himself and Mary His Mother, and wasn't the marriage beautiful?
Companies were laid out there, and in want of wine;
But the water in the vessels, wasn't it beautiful to taste?
O bright God, O Jesus, O bright King of the earth,
Who bore the crown of thorns and the sacrifice of the cross,
Torn and flogged among those without friends,
You broke the locks which were against us.
Too fine is the treasure the Lord of Glory has in store for us,
His own blood and body as food for the sinners.
Don't place your hope in gold or in wealth,
Because it is a falsehood like mist, compared to the glory of heaven.
