Die Richtige Mitte

Die Richtige Mitte
In the town square, one man holds up the Ten Commandments; another ducks under a prayer shawl. In German, the text reads : "Dieses hat euch Gott gegeben. / Wollt Ihr's rein verehren lieben, / Wird Euch Heilin diesem Leben. / Und Gottseligkeit einst drüben! / Laßt das Alte uns verfechten! / Nichts von Ehren nichts von Lieben, / Nichts von Freiheit nichts von Rechten; / Leichter fischt es sich im Trüben." In English, the text reads : "This was given to you all by God. / Do you all want to love and honor its purity, / It will heal you all in this life. / And God's blessing is over there! / Allow the old to advocate for us! / Nothing from honor, nothing from love, / Nothing from freedom, nothing from rights; / It is easier to fish in the fog."
