The Song of the Cross

The Palästinalied (“Palestine Song”, also known as Kreuzlied “Song of the Cross”) is a song written in the early 13th century by Walther von der Vogelweide, the most celebrated lyric poet of Middle High German literature. It is one of the few songs by Walther for which a melody has survived.

The first line of the subtitles is Middle High German, the second modern German and on the bottom is the English translation.

Glorious and powerful song from the times when Christians bent the knee only to God!
