Videosex - Lacrimae Christi (English translation)

German

Lacrimae Christi

Es war in alten Zei­ten
Ein schwä­bi­scher Fie­del­mann,
Der kräf­tig strich die Sai­ten
Und lus­tige Mären sang.
 
Mit Frie­de­rich dem Alten
Ins Welsch­land zog er ein
Und kos­tete beim Wan­dern
So recht verschied'nen Wein.
 
Und als auf sei­nem Zuge
Er nach Nea­pel kam,
Quoll ihm aus ird­'nem Kruge
Ein Trop­fen wun­der­sam.
 
Er trank mit durst'­gem Munde
Und rief den Wirt her­bei:
"Ah, Lie­bster, gebt mir Kunde,
Was für ein Wein das sei.
 
Er rinnt mir alten Kna­ben
Wie Feuer durch's Gebein;
Von allen Got­tes­ga­ben
Muss das die beste sein."
 
Der dicke Kel­ler­meis­ter
gab ihm die Ant­wort gern:
"Lacri­mae Christi heißt er,
Und Trä­nen sind's des Herrn".
 
Da über­kam ein Trau­ern
Den frem­den Fie­del­mann;
Er dachte an den Sau­ern,
Der in der Hei­mat rann.
 
Und betend sank er nie­der,
Den Blick empor gewandt.
"Herr, weinst du ein­mal wie­der,
so wein im Schwabenland!"

English translation

Lacrimae Christi (Christ's tears)

In olden times there was
A Swabian fiddleman
Who struck the strings
And sang funny tunes
 
With Old Frederick
He marched into Italy
And as he went hiking
He tasted many wines
 
And when on his trek
He came to Naples
From an earthen jug
Flowed a marvelous drop
 
He drank with thirsty lips
And called the host:
"Oh dearest do declare
What wine is this here?
 
It creeps like fire
Into my old bones;
Of all of God's offerings
This must be the best."
 
The fat winemaker
Answered him with joy:
"It's called Lacrimae Christi,
And it's the tears of the Lord."
 
Great grief then overcame
The foreign fiddleman
He thought about the sour wine
That flowed where he came from.
 
And praying he sank down
His eyes gazing up.
"Lord if you cry again,
Please cry in Swabia!"
