A. 130. The Alternatives


(From Warte)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

Drinking much and playing much
three young noblemen,
bold young knights three.

Considering a bad judgment,
How they might trick by reason
the young maidens.

How they would bring them
truly of their young maidens,
truly of their innocence.

But our young maidens
gave it to the dear God,
that they closed the door.

They had heard from the door,
had heard, yes had heard,
and had heard it all.

How they counseled with diligence
advised their bad judgment,
advised their bad judgment.

The knight came close to her
on his steed, the white steed,
on his steed, the white steed.

Do you sleep or do you not sleep,
you my most beautiful child?
you my most beautiful child?

If I allow a knave within,
It may be yes for my eternal ruin,
It may be yes for my eternal ruin.

Stop now your little steed
under the green Linden tree,
under the green Linden tree.

Spread out your coat
on the green, green grass,
on the green, green grass.

It is so very dark here,
and it rains all so very often,
and it rains all so very often.

In order to improve your bed,
in order to improve also your sleep,
in order to improve also your sleep.

If you will pray diligently,
God will also answer you,
God will also answer you.

But if you will flee,
God the Lord will punish you,
God the Lord will punish you.
