Margarete Münsterberg, ed., trans.  A Harvest of German Verse.  1916.
 
There Is a House in Heaven
By Spervogel (1150–1200)
 
THERE is a house in heaven, they say;
You reach it by a golden way.
The pillars are of marble white;
The noblest jewels gleaming bright
The Lord has laid within.        5
No soul may enter there by right
That is not free from sin.
