Der Goldball im Meere

In Meeres Mitten ist ein Ball von Golde,
Es streitet drum der Türke mit dem Christen.
Wem wird zuletzt der edle Schatz zu Solde?

The golden ball in the sea

Amidst the sea there is a golden ball,
fought over by the Christians and the Turks.
This treasure - whose pay is it after all?
 
Thanks!
