You were born of Eisleben, O divine Prophet Luther,
Religion shines, with you as Leader, the Pope lies dead.

The Youth captures the ranks of Master in the city of Erfurt
Dwelling there after completing four lustra of his life.

The empty superstition the youthful body with a hood
Adorns, this all was for a deceit to you – good! – O Pope.

THE YEAR in which he came to Wittenberg. 1508.

With Christ aiding, Luther is sent to the Elbe,
How great was the Seer? how much glory for the School?

THE DOCTORAL YEAR and in which he was in Rome. 1511.

He obtained the Doctoral ranks by the order of Staupitz,
When he came from the city of the fierce Italian Wolf.

YEAR OF RESTORING religion. 1517.

You drag the work of religion out of the muck, with Christ
As leader, O truthful Luther leaning on the right hand of God.

THE YEAR OF THE CONFESSION BEFORE Imperial Cajetan, which is extant in Volume 1, page 207.1518.

Luther publicly declares Christ in the city of the Emperor
Not caring about your looks, O severe leader.

THE YEAR OF THE DEBATE at Leipzig. 1519.

Eck is defeated by the virtue of Just Luther,
As he debates on the July day in the city of Leipzig.
