There Was No Sin
Then they adhered to their reason.
There was no sin;
in the holy faith their lives were passed.
There was no sickness;
they had then no aching bones;
they had then no high fever;
they had then no smallpox;
they had then no burning chest;
they had then no abdominal pains;
they had then no consumption;
they had then no headache.
At that time the course of humanity was orderly.
The foreigners made it otherwise when they arrived here.
They brought shameful things when they came…
this was the cause of our sickness also.
There were no more lucky days for us;
we had no sound judgment.
At the end our loss of vision,
and of our shame,
everything shall be revealed.
