You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Freunde, laßt uns Hand in Hand, in vereinten Chören,
Unsre theures Vaterland, unser Preußen ehren!
Ruft ihr Freunde fern und nah:
Es lebe hoch Borussia! 

Jedes Mädchen brav und gut, das in deinen Grenzen
Unter kühlen Linden ruht, müsse Liebe kränzen. 
Jedes edle deutsche Weib pfleg' in deinem Schatten
Kinder schon an Seel und Leib, von dem besten Gatten. 

Biedersinn und Redlichkeit ächte deutsche Sitten,
Guter Muth und Fröhlichkeit wohnt in deinen Hütten.
Ruft ihr Freunde fern und nah:
Es lebe hoch Borussia! 

Jeder brave Jüngling blüh' froh in deinem Thälern,
Und das Unglück müsse nie seine Wonne schmälern! 
Jeder alte brave Mann stoß' in deinen Lauben
Fröhlich seinen Becher an, voll von Saft der Trauben. 

Edles Land, befreit von Weh blüh' vor allen Landen.
Und kein Unfall mache je deinen Glanz zu schanden.
Ruft ihr Freunde fern und nah:
Es lebe hoch Borussia!
