Death to the emperor:

Leg ab kron zepter vnd gewalt,
   Hie bist du gleich wie ander gstalt,
Ein ander her ist jtzunt hie,
   Dem bogen werden alle knie

Lay down crown, scepter and power,
   here you are the same as other creatures.
Another lord is here now,
   to whom every knee will bow.(*)

(*) Philippians 2:10, "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, […]". There's a larger version here: Fürstlich chronica.
