Vidi aquam egrediemtem de templo, a latere dextro, et omnes ad quos pervenit aqua ista salvi facti sunt.
I saw water flowing from the right side of the temple, and all to whom this water came were saved.
Wandrer, du müder, du bist zu Haus.
Die Treu’ ist hier,
Sollst liegen bei mir,
Bis das Meer will trinken die Bachlein aus.
Tired wanderer, you are home.
Here is faithfulness,
You will lie down with me
Until the sea drinks up the little brooks.
For in my nature I quested for beauty, but God, God hath sent me to sea for pearls.
