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!

Gott! Gott! höre meine Stimme

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gott! Gott! höre meine Stimme,
Höre gnädig auf mein Flehn!
Sieh, ich liege hier im Staube!
Soll die Hoffnung, soll der Glaube
An dein Vaterherz vergehn?

Er soll es büßen mit seinem Blute,
Was er gewagt mit [freudigem]1 Muthe,
Was er für mich und die Liebe gethan?
Sind all die Wünsche nur eitle Träume,
Zerknickt die Hoffnung die zarten Keime,
Ist Lieb' und Seligkeit nur ein Wahn?

Nein! nein! das kannst du nicht gebieten,
Das wird dein Vaterherz verhüten,
Gott, du bist meine Zuversicht!
Du wirst zwey Herzen so nicht trennen,
Die nur vereinigt schlagen können!
Nein, Vater, nein, das kannst du nicht!

Déu, escolta la meva veu

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Déu, escolta la meva veu,
escolta amb indulgència la meva súplica!
Mira, estic aquí en la pols!
La fe i l’esperança, han d’anar a morir
al teu cor paternal?
És que ell ha d’expiar amb la seva sang,
el que va gosar fer amb un esperit joiós,
tot el que ell ha fet per mi i per amor?
És que tots els afanys són només somnis frívols?
És que l’esperança pot esbocinar el germen tendre?
Són l’amor i la benaurança tan sols una il•lusió?

No! No! No pots permetre que sigui així,
el teu cor paternal ho impedirà,
Déu, tu ets la meva ferma esperança!
Tu no deixaràs separar dos cors
que només junts poden bategar!
No, Pare, no, això no ho pots fer!
