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!

Es steht ein' Lind' in jenem Tal

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es steht ein' Lind' in jenem Tal,
ach Gott, was tut sie da?
Sie will mir helfen trauren, trauren,
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab',
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab'.

Es sitzt ein Vöglein auf dem Zaun,
ach Gott, was tut es da?
Es will mir helfen klagen, klagen,
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab',
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab'.

Es quillt ein Brünnlein auf dem Plan,
ach Gott, was tut es da?
Es will mir helfen weinen, weinen,
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab',
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab'.

Er staat een linde, ginds in 't dal

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Er staat een linde, ginds in 't dal,
Ach god, waar dient die voor?
Hij wil mij helpen treuren, treuren,
Dat ik mijn liefste schat verloor.
Dat ik mijn liefste schat verloor.
 
Er zit een vogeltje op het hek,
Ach god, waar dient dat voor?
Het wil mij helpen klagen, klagen,
Dat ik mijn liefste schat verloor.
Dat ik mijn liefste schat verloor.
 
Er welt een bronnetje in het veld,
Ach god, waar dient dat voor?
Het wil mij helpen wenen, wenen,
Dat ik mijn liefste schat verloor.
Dat ik mijn liefste schat verloor.
