“O red rosebud! Man lies in deepest need! Man lies in deepest pain! Oh how I would rather be in heaven. There, I came upon a broad path; There, came a little angel and wanted to send me away. Ah no! I would not let myself be sent away! I am from God and will return to God! The loving God will give me a little light, Which will light me into that eternal blissful life!
