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 hieß die Sonne glühen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Azerbaijani (Azərbaycan dili)

Gott hieß die Sonne glühen
Und leuchten durch alle Welt,
Er hieß die Rosen blühen
Auf duftigem Blumenfeld.

Er hieß die Berge sich türmen
Und über die Lande erheben,
Ließ Winde wehen und stürmen,
Schuf vielgestaltiges Leben.

Er gab den Vögeln Gefieder,
Dem Meere sein ewiges Rauschen,
Mir gab er sinnige Lieder,
Euch Ohren, ihnen zu lauschen!

Dieu ordonna au soleil de briller

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Dieu ordonna au soleil de briller
Et d'éclairer le monde entier,
Il ordonna aux roses de fleurir,
Sur les prairies fleuries et parfumées.

Il ordonna aux montagnes de se dresser
Et de s'élever au-dessus des terres,
Il laissa les vents souffler et tempêter,
Il créa la vie sous de nombreuses formes.

Il donna aux oiseaux le plumage,
À la mer son bruit éternel,
Il me donna des chants ingénieux
Et à vous des oreilles pour les écouter !
