Johannes sahe durch Gesicht.--(Goed. 319.)

Based on Chap. VII, 9. ff. of Revelations. It appeared in Ebeling, 1667, 7, 84.

English Version:
1. By John was seen a wondrous sight,
      A noble light,
A picture very glorious:
A multitude stood 'fore him there
All bright and fair,
On heav'nly plain victorious;
Their heart and mood
Were full of good,
That mortal man 81
With gold ne'er can
Procure, so high 'tis o'er us. . . .

Stanza 1 of a complete translation by J. Kelly, 1867, p. 347.
