Palästinalied 2

Dô er sich wolte übr uns erbarmen,
Hie leit er den grimmen tôt,
Er vil rîche durch uns armen,
Daz wir kœmen ûz der nôt.
Daz in dô des niht verdrôz,
Dast ein wunder alze grôz,
Aller wunder übergenôz.

Hinnen fuor der sun zer helle,
Von dem grabe, dâ er inne lac.
Des was ie der vater geselle
Und der geist, den nieman mac
Sunder scheiden: êst al ein,
Sleht und ebener danne ein zein,
Als er Abrahâme erschein.

(Halleluja, Halleluja)

Dô er den tievel dô geschande
Daz nie keiser baz gestreit,
Dô fuor er her wider ze lande.
Dô huob sich der juden leit

(Halleluja, Halleluja)
Palestine Song 2

As he wanted to take pity on us,
here he suffered grim death,
he, most rich, on us, most poor,
that we may escape from woe,
that he was not vexed by this,
this is a miracle all too great,
beyond all other miracles.

Thence the Son rode to hell,
from the grave wherein he lay.
For he was ever joined to the Father,
and to the Spirit, which no-one may
divide: They are all One,
straighter and smoother than an arrow-shaft,
as He appeared to Abraham.

(Hallelujah, Hallelujah)

Having humiliated the devil there,
such that no emperor has ever fought better,
he travelled back to this land.
Then began the Jews' sorrow:

(Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
