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!

So ruhig geh' ich meinen Pfad

Language: German (Deutsch)

So ruhig geh' ich meinen Pfad,
  So still ist mir zu Mut;
Es dünkt mir jeder Weg gerad'
  Und jedes Wetter gut.

Wohin mein Weg mich führen mag,
  Der Himmel ist mein Dach,
Die Sonne kommt mit jedem Tag,
  Die Sterne halten Wach'.

Und komm' ich spät und komm' ich früh
  Ans Ziel, das mir gestellt:
Verlieren kann ich mich doch nie,
  O Gott, aus Deiner Welt!

Песнь странника

Language: Russian (Русский) after the German (Deutsch)

Иду извилистой тропой, 
спокойно дышит грудь.
Погоде радуясь любой,
дойду я как-нибудь.

Не заблужусь я никогда,
вверху небесный кров,
а в нём то солнце, то звезда 
глядит из облаков.

Иду с утра и до темна,
средь гор, среди равнин.
Вперёд всегда, и цель одна,
и мир всегда один.
