An dem österlichen Tag
Maria Magdalena ging zu dem Grab;
was fand sie in dem Grabe stehn?
Einen Engel wohlgetan.
Der Engel grüsst sie in der Zeit:
"Den da suchet das vielselige Weib,
er ist erstanden von dem Tod,
den du salben wolltest".
"Maria!" ruft er ihr zu hant,
da erkennt sie ihren Heiland,
sie sah in aller der Gebärde,
sann er ein Wärter wäre.

On easter day
Mary Magdalene visited the grave;
What did she find there by the side?
A beautiful angel.
The angel addressed her:
The one you seek, blessed woman,
to annoint him with spices,
he was resurrected from death.
As he calls her by her name "Mary!",
she recognises him for her saviour,
and now by his gestures too
she knows he is not a guardian.
