Nichtswürdig bist du, wenn gemeiner Sinn...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Nichtswürdig bist du, wenn gemeiner Sinn und Rohheit
dich beim Sündetun beherrschen,
doch wenn du lautern Herzens Sünde tust,
so ist die Sünde etwas strahlend Schönes,
und du wirst herzhaft sündigend zum Gott.
