There Is a House in Heaven - Spervogel

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.
No soul may enter there by right
That is not free from sin.

Spervogel (1150 – 1200) Germany
Translated by Margarete Münsterberg
