Original text and translations
"kruys" is probably a coin, German "Kreuzer", carrying a cross, which was of widespread use in German-speaking countries. Joris and Floris might be person's names, but today at least they are beer names, too.
Hola, niemant in huis,
Hola, niemand zuhaus,
Hola,no one at home,
