A. 283. Mary’s Flight


(From: Konnewiz)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

The poor man was sowing barley
There on the wayside by the foot bridge.

There Saint Mary passed by
With her little child.

‘God bless you, God bless you, my dear man,
God bless you and also bless the barley.’

‘When you have finished sowing the barley,
Get your sickle from at home.’

‘If it is not ready at one end,
Start cutting on the other end.’

‘If the Jews come by here,
The Jews, the sinful heathens,’

‘Don’t conceal me from them,
But also don’t betray me to them.’

Mary was hiding behind the hill,
The Jews, the sinful, came chasing.’

“God bless you, God bless you, my dear man
God bless you and also bless your barley.”

“Didn’t a women come by here
With her little child?”

‘Yes, a women came by recently ,
As I was sowing the barley.’

“You stupid and foolish man,
That happened twelve weeks ago.”

Soon they turned around, yes turned around there,
The Jews, the sinful heathens.

Stabbed all the children to death,
From the one to the two year olds.

Stabbed all the children to death,
Jesus Christ they did not find.
