Wenn dein Bildniß wäre gemalet

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Wenn dein Bildniß wäre gemalet,
Und zum König der Heiden gesandt,
Mit seinen Schätzen hätt' er's bezahlet,
Er gäb' dir die Kron' in die Hand;
Und ließe verkünden die Lehren
Vom Herrn Jesu in seinem Reich,
Und daß sie sich sollten bekehren,
Und [dich lieben]1 zugleich;
Alle Heiden sich sollten bekehren,
Und [dich lieben]1 zugleich.
