They are fairly rough tanslations, and as has been pointed out to me, the Welsh does need to be rethoguht rather than mindlessly translated. I’m not necessarily happy with the first translation simply because I’m not sure the Welsh language does translate like that. It uses an English form of speaking that just sounds weird in Welsh.

English:

and life up our hearts to worship you

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

Amen

English:
We will go into the world
to walk in God’s light,
to rejoice in God’s love
and to reflect God’s glory.

Welsh
