Andre beten zur Madonne,

Nur zu dir, du schöne Sonne.

Sei mir gütig, sei mir gnädig,
Schönste Sonne unter den Mädchen,
Schönstes Mädchen unter der Sonne!

Some to Mary bend the knee
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Some to Mary bend the knee,
Others unto Paul and Peter,
I, however, I will worship,
Sun of beauty, only thee.

Kiss me, love me, dearest one,
Be thou gracious, show me favor,
Fairest sun among all maidens,
Fairest maiden under sun.
