You would have gotten a few cliche words about making resolutions. Maybe a shoutout to the fact that they began construction in something like 1173 and how long ago that was.
Here is the translation, still as lovely and awesome a few weeks later as it would have been before:
As engraved on the Lübeck Cathedral
Ye call Me Light and see Me not,
Ye call Me Way and walk not,
Ye call Me Life and desire Me not,
Ye call Me wise and follow Me not,
Ye call Me fair and love Me not,
Ye call Me rich and ask Me not,
Ye call Me eternal and seek Me not,
Ye call Me gracious and trust Me not,
Ye call Me noble and serve Me not,
Ye call Me mighty and honor Me not,
Ye call Me just and fear Me not,
If I condemn you, blame me not.
Actually, I have found that the German has a different ending than the "translation" and the wording is different throughout. Weird, right?
Here is an image equivalent of the above.
