Als wir mit deutschen Klingen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Als wir mit deutschen Klingen
Geführt manch guten Streich,
Galt auch das erste Singen
Dem Kaiser und dem Reich.
Dem Herrn der Herrn sei Ehre,
Denn Großes ist gescheh'n;
Ich seh' in neuen Farben
Des Reiches Banner weh'n
Und wieder treu beim Kaiser
Thüringens Landgraf steh'n.

Confirmed with "Der Brautwillkomm auf Wartburg"Fünf Dichtungen von Joseph Viktor von Scheffel, Stuttgart: Verlag von Adolf Bonz & Comp., 1887, page 31.

Note (provided by Sharon Krebs): Under the poem are the following words: "(Der Sängerknabe übergiebt einen silberbeschlagenen Prachtband.)" This could be translated "(The choirboy presents a luxury-volume embossed with silver.)". The "Sängerknabe" (choirboy) is the little chap who takes the presents from the various singers and places them in front of the bride.
