~ O heil'ger Florian ~
The verse is well illustrated on the front of this etched Mettlach stein mold number 2091 dated 1896.
O heil'ger Florian!
Lass meinen Brand in Ruhe gaan (gehen).
Doch strömt dein Wasser über mir!
so bitt' ich Schütte nichts in's Bier!

Feuersnoth ist große Noth,
oft groß der Brand beim glas.
Die eine färbt den Himmel roth,
der andere die Nas!
O Holy Florian!
Let my fire burn in peace.
Stream your water over me!
but I beg don't let it pour into my beer!

Fire is a great disaster,
often also great in the glass:
the former colors the heaven red,
and the other the nose!
