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!

Wie herrlich leuchtet

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie herrlich leuchtet
Mir die Natur!
Wie glänzt die Sonne! 
Wie lacht die Flur!

Es dringen Blüten
Aus jedem Zweig
Und tausend Stimmen
Aus dem Gesträuch,

Und Freud und Wonne 
Aus jeder Brust.
O Erd', o Sonne!
O Glück, o Lust!

O Lieb', o Liebe! 
So golden schön,
Wie Morgenwolken 
Auf jenen Höhn!

Du segnest herrlich 
Das frische Feld,
Im Blütendampfe 
Die [volle]1 Welt.

O [Mädchen, Mädchen]2, 
Wie lieb ich dich!
Wie [blickt]3 dein Auge, 
Wie liebst du mich!

So liebt die Lerche
Gesang und Luft,
Und Morgenblumen 
Den Himmelsduft,

Wie ich dich liebe
Mit warmen Blut,
Die du mir Jugend
Und Freud und Mut

[Zu]4 neuen Liedern
Und Tänzen gibst.
Sei ewig glücklich, 
Wie du mich liebst!

Canción de mayo

Language: Spanish (Español) after the German (Deutsch)

Qué soberbia luce
para mí natura!
Cómo brilla el sol!
Cómo ríe el campo!

Brotan flores
de cada rama
y mil cantos
de los arbustos,

y alegría y delicia
de cada pecho.
Oh, tierra, oh, sol!
Oh, felicidad, oh goce!

Oh, amor, oh, amor!
De oro tan bonito
como las nubes de la mañana
en aquellos montes!

Bendices majestuosamente
los campos frescos,
con el vapor de las flores
el mundo entero.

Oh, niña, niña,
cómo te quiero!
Cómo miran tus ojos!
Cómo me quieres!

Así la alondra ama
el canto y el aire,
y las flores de la mañana
el aroma del cielo,

como yo con cálida sangre
te amo a ti,
la que me das juventud
y alegría y bríos

para canciones nuevas
y nuevos bailes!
¡Seas eternamente feliz
amándome así!
