On the Walhalla
August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben (1798–1874)
 
Anonymous translation

  HAIL to thee, thou lofty hall
Of German greatness, German glory!
  Hail to you, ye heroes all
Of ancient and of modern story!
 
  O ye heroes in the hall,        5
Were ye but alive, as once!
  Nay, that would not do at all,—
The king prefers you, stone and bronze!
