Vers 7
Ward dem Manne minder
Gattin, Ehr und Gut,
und geliebte Kinder
und gesundes Blut,
Freunde, treu und bieder
und dem Herzen wert?
Auch durch Glück der Brüder
ward sein Glück vermehrt.

English Translation

Verse 7
Did the man lose
companion, glory and possessions,
beloved children
and lively blood,
friends, faithful and honest
and worthy to his heart?
Also by the fortune of his brethren,
his own fortune is increased.
