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 April 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Wie erkenn' ich dein Treulieb

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Wie erkenn' ich dein Treulieb
Aus den Andern nun?
An dem Stab und Muschelhut
Und den Pilgerschuhn.
 
Fräulein, er ist tot, er ruht
Tief im kühlen Schrein.
Grüner Rasen deckt sein Haupt,
Seinen Fuß ein Stein. O, O!
 
Weiß wie Schnee seinen Leichenkleid --
Blumen allerwegen,
Ach, sein Grab war ohne Leid,
Ohne Thränenregen.
