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!

O my deir hert, young Jesus sweit

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

O my deir hert, young Jesus sweit,
Prepare thy creddil in my spreit,
And I sall rock thee in my hert
And never mair from thee depart.

But I sall praise thee evermoir
With sangis sweit unto thy gloir;
The knees of my heart sall I bow,
And sing that richt Balulalow!

Mein teures Herz, süß Jesulein

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Mein teures Herz, süß Jesulein,
mach meine Seel’ zur Wiege dein,
ins Herze will ich wiegen dich,
nicht weichen von dir ewiglich.

Ich will dich preisen immer mehr
mit süßem Sang zu deiner Ehr;
Ich beuge meines Herzens Knie
und sing dein Schlafensmelodie.
