Lettering

Der Tod zum Abt. Herr Abt! ich zieh euch die Nfflen ab, desshalb nutzt euch nicht mehr der Stab: sind ihr g'wesen ein guter Hirt hie eurer Schaaf, die Ehr euch wird. Antwort des Abts. Ich hab mich als ein Abt erhebt, und in hohen Ehren g'lebt: auch setzt' sich niemand wider mich, dannoch bin ich dem Tode glich.
