Lindemann praises Halberstadt, describing it as a beacon of wisdom, virtue, and justice on the Saxon border. He rhetorically questions whether virtue should remain hidden in darkness, suggesting instead that it should come forth into the light to inspire future generations. Lindemann extols Halberstadt for embodying noble wisdom, piety, steadfastness of mind, and exceptional prudence in handling significant affairs. He likens the city to a counsel of laws and jurisprudence, capable of expelling societal ills. He further personifies justice, imagining Astraea herself choosing Halberstadt as her eternal throne. The text also acknowledges the city's rich historical legacy and its role in nurturing its youth towards great deeds of virtue. Lindemann specifically mentions the illustrious offspring, Scheunemann, who has gained fame beyond the city's borders. Scheunemann is likened to a gem, reflecting new rays of honor and glory back to Halberstadt. The poem concludes with Lindemann urging the city to accept the gifts and honors bestowed upon it by its accomplished progeny, symbolizing a blend of gratitude, medical wisdom, and justice.
