     I. Schlössli bschnyde

Gärtner, chum cho d'Schlößli bschnyde!    
s'mags nid jedes Stündeli lyde,
s'git gar fyni drunder!

Und wär eis so weich wie Syde:
Chunt de Rächtcho d'Schlößli bschnyde,
denn passiert es Wunder.

Gartner, come the shoots cut!
S' may be's not every perennial suffering.
S'there is even fine eating!

Was the one as soft as silk:
the rights would be to cut the shoots,
then it happens!

Mark Alburger (b. 1957)     
The Lords Prayer, Op. 5 (1975) (Matthew 6:9-13, KJV)

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
