#5 - Servant Ruprecht

Not only a fire warms house and hearts in the cold season

From the outside, from the forest I come, I must say to you, Christmas is very much in evidence

And everywhere on pine tree tops I saw little golden lights

And up at the gate of heaven the Christ child looked out with big eyes

And as I roamed through dark pine forest He called to me in a clear voice

Servant Rupert, my old friend Move your legs and hurry up

The candles are now burning the gate of heaven is open

The old and the young should now take a rest from the chase of life

And tomorrow I'll fly down to earth for it will be Christmas again

I said "Oh dear Lord Jesus, my journey is near its end

I have only this city left to visit where there are some really good children"

"Do you have the sack with you?"

I said "The sack is here for apples, nuts and almonds

Pious children like to eat"

"Do you also have the rod?"

I said "The rod is here, but only for children that are wicked, It will strike them where it should"

The Christ child said "That is right, so go with god my faithful servant."

The candles are now burning the gate of heaven is open

The old and the young should now take a rest from the chase of life

The candles are now burning the gate of heaven is open

The old and the young should now take a rest from the chase of life

From the outside, from the forest I come, I must say to you, Christmas is very much in evidence

So tell me whom do I find inside Is it a good child or a wicked child?
