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!

Die Rose blüht, ich bin die Fromme Biene

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Rose blüht ich bin die Fromme Biene	
Und Rühre zwar die keuschen blätter an	
Daher ich Thau und Honig Schöpfen kann	
Doch lebt ihr Glanz und bleibet immer grüne	
Und allso bin ich wohl gemüth	
Weil meine Rose blüth.

Die Rose blüht Gott laß den Schein verziehen	
Damit die Zeit des Sommers langsam geht	
Und weder Frost, noch andere Noth entsteht	
So wird mein Glück in dieser Rose blühn	
Dann klingt mein süßes Freudenlied	
O meine Rose blüht.

Die Rose blüht sie lacht vor andern Rosen	
Mit solcher Zier und Herzempfindlichkeit	
Daß auch mein Sinn sich zu der Pflicht erbeut	
Mit keiner Blum im Garden zu Liebkosen	
Weil alles was mann sonsten sieht,	
in dieser Rose blüht.
