How can I query the data related to "Der arme Heinrich"?

The data in this knowledge base can be made accessible through a SPARQL endpoint and queried as follows:

# Lemma in context

PREFIX hva: <>
PREFIX data: <>

select ?lemma ?vnum ?text
where {
  ?word_uri a hva:Word .
  ?word_uri rdfs:isDefinedBy data:Ontology .
  ?word_uri hva:lemma ?lemma .
  ?word_uri hva:verseNumber ?vnum .
  ?word_uri hva:partOfVerse ?verse_uri .
  ?verse_uri hva:text ?text .
order by asc (?lemma)

The above query executed against an endpoint containing the "Der arme Heinrich" (ah) dataset would return a result set with entries for the lemma, the verse number, and the verse text.
