B. 062. The Rescue


(From: Nauendorf)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

Gone is the Steig.
Who has taken him?
Who has taken him?

Yes, who has taken him?
A youth who visited us.
A youth who visited us.

He came late in the evening to visit us
Early in the morning he went back home.
Early in the morning he went back home.

They laid in wait for him, yes they laid in wait
All of the Nauendorf youth.
All of the Nauendorf youth.

They wanted to catch him,
They wanted to wound him.
They wanted to wound him.

His loved one heard it
In the new bedroom.
In the new bedroom.

In the new bedroom,
In the clean bed.
In the clean bed.

Dear one, my most dear one,
How can I get back home?
How can I get back home?

Good advice I want to give you,
Do you want to follow someone else?
Do you want to follow someone else?

I will gladly follow you,
If I can get back home.
If I can get back home.

Yes, she put on
Her green coat.
Her green coat.

Yes, she took off
Her white apron.
Her white apron.

Yes, she took off
Her silk sash.
Her silk sash.

Yes, she put on
Her white veil.
Her white veil.

Yes, she put on
Both of her shoes.
Both of her shoes.

Yes, she took off
Her silk scarf.
Her silk scarf.

Yes, she gave him
Two small white jugs.
Two small white jugs.

Yes, she sent him
To get some fresh water.
To get some fresh water.

Thorwart, my dear Thorwart,
Just let the girl go.
Just let the girl go.

To get water for me,
Fresh, fresh water for me.
Fresh, fresh water for me.

What is that you have for a girl
In your green coat?
In your green coat?

On the side a sharp sword,
In the belt two knives.
In the belt two knives.

She got off the bridge
With happy rejoicing.
With happy rejoicing.

Thank you, thank you my lover,
That you rescued me.
That you rescued me.

That you rescued me
And also my young life.
And also my young life.

You shall now be mine,
No other it shall be.
No other it shall be.

I will cloth you in linen
In the most costly satin.
In the most costly satin.

With the most costly fine velvet
With a hard diamond.
With a hard diamond.
