Original text and translations

German.png German text

Was ist die welt/
gelt hat allein den preiß/
fleiß braucht jederman/
nie mand sicht an/
was da der Seelen schaden kan.

English.png English translation

What is the world/
only money is extoled/
everybody are diligent/
no one reflects on/
what may harm their soul.
