Jam jest dudka, p/e


Jam jest dudka Jezusa mojego,
Będę Mu grał z serca uprzejmego.

Graj dudka, graj, graj Panu, graj!

Zagram Mu najpierwej w dudeczki,
Wy z Nim hyżo skaczcie panieneczki,

Graj dudka...

Na piszczałce i na multaneczkach
Na bandurce oraz na skrzypeczkach

Graj dudka...

Na fujarze, harfie i cymale,
Na organach i wdzięcznym regale

Graj dudka...

Na puzonie, cytrze i wioli,
Niech się Dziecię nacieszy do woli.

Graj dudka...

Na klarnetach i do lutni zmierzę,
W trąby, w kotły na wiwat uderzę.

Graj dudka...

Pomnij Jezu, żem ja Twój jest dudka;
Pieśń ma szczera, chociaż jest króciutka.

Żyj we mnie, żyj - żyj wiecznie żyj.


Jan Kaszycki, Kantyczki z nutami, Kraków 1911


0149-2. I am just a fiddler

I am just a fiddler for my dear Lord,
Fiddling music that my love can afford.

Play fiddle, play; play sweetly play. (2)

I will play for Him today music sweet
Come now children sprightly dance with light feet.

Play fiddle…

I will also play on my fife and flute
March around the Baby King and salute.

Play fiddle…

On my harp I'll entertain my Lord and King
Then again, I'll let my two cymbals ring.

Play fiddle…

I will play until the Child's tiny feet
Will jump up from joy at each rhythmic beat.

Play fiddle…

Then I'll pluck the strings of my viola
Till the Infant happily cries la, la, la.

Play fiddle…

The clarinet I'll play for Him, oh, so well
Let the drums and tympani for Him swell.

Play fiddle…

I will play as long as my strength will last
Of my true love this will be one great test.

Play fiddle…

I'm your instrument, oh sweet King of Kings
Play upon my body, soul and heart strings.

Play Jesus, play, play sweetly play, (2)

I will play for You, from morn until night
Watching all Your movements in radiant light.

Play fiddle…

Jesus, though my song is short, do not weep
Oh, remember, Lord, I am Yours to keep.

Live in- me, live, Jesus live. (2)
