First Line: In the rhine, that beautiful river
Last Line: Resemble my mistress fair.
Variant Title(s): Song
Subject(s): Cologne, Germany; Rhine (river), Europe


IN the Rhine, that beautiful river,
The sacred town of Cologne,
With its vast cathedral, is ever
Full clearly mirror'd and shown.

A picture on golden leather
In that fair cathedral is seen;
On my life, so sad altogether,
It hath cast its rays serene.

The flowers and angels hover
Round our dear Lady there;
Her eyes, lips, cheeks, all over
Resemble my mistress fair.
