    Thus ardens in igne

    o Wierookgraan,
    geronnen traan
van ceder- en van lorkenstammen,
    daar 't vier in speelt,
en 't vonkelen van 's herten vlammen.

    Geen gave van
    fijn goud en kan
mijn hand den Heer, geen myrrha bieden,
    maar wierook zal,
    en overal
en allen [dag]1, Hem dank bedieden.

    o Wierookgraan,
    in 't vier gedaan,
en rookende uit mijns herten midden,
    van aardsch en grauw
    wordt hemelsch blauw:
gaat, wierookgraan, den [Heere]2 aanbidden!
