I have won my lifelong prayer: I am in the country where God in human shape did fare.
Lands, the greatest, goodliest, fairest, Many such mine eyes have seen; O'er them all the crown thou bearest. Think what wonders here have been! From a Maid a babe did spring, O'er the angel hosts a king; Was not that a wondrous thing? For the very first I am alive to myself, since my sinful eye beholds the noble land, and also that earth to which so much honour is given.
That has come to pass for which I have ever prayed: I have come to the place where God walked in human form. Such fair lands, rich and noble, as I have seen elsewhere, you are the honour of them all, what miracles have come to pass here!

Here He let them sell Him later, That we thralls might so be free. We had else been lost, I wis. Spear, Cross, thorn, your praise it is! Heathens, woe! Down to hell the Son descended From the grave wherein he lay.

Here he, being purelet himself be baptizedso that man might be pure. There he let himself be soldso that we thralls might be free; otherwise we would be lost.
Hail to you, spear, cross, and thorn! Woe to you, heathens, this is an outrage to you! As he wanted to take pity on us, here he suffered grim deathhe, most rich, on us, most poor, that we might escape from woe. That he was not vexed by this, this is a miracle all too great, beyond all other miracles. Thence the Son rode to hellfrom the grave wherein he lay.
For he was an eternal companion to the Father, and to the Spirit, which no one may divide: They are all Onestraighter and smoother than an arrow-shaft, as Triumph Of The Will - Devo - Duty Now For The Future -Mislabeled Side 1 appeared to Abraham.
Having humiliated the devil there, such that no emperor has ever fought better, he travelled back to this land. Then began the Jews' sorrow: that he, the Lord, broke from their custody and that he was later seen alive, whom their hand had beaten and pierced.
