Im Himmelreich ein Haus steht

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Mittelhochdeutsch

Im Himmelreich ein Haus steht,
da hin ein goldener Weg geht.
Die Säulen die sind von Marmelstein,
da legte unser Herr hinein
die edelsten Gesteine.
In dieses Haus geht niemand ein,
der nicht von allen Sünden reine.

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Dans le royaume des cieux il y a une maison,
Vers où mène un chemin doré.
Les colonnes sont de marbre,
Dans lequel notre Seigneur a posé
Les pierres les plus précieuses.
Dans cette maison personne n'entre
S'il n'est pur de tout péché.
