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 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Die Liebe

Language: Alemannic (Swabian)

Wo weiht der Liebi schöne Geist?
Er weiht in Bluem und Baum
im wiiten Erdballs-Raum;
er weiht, vo d'Chnospe si verspalte,
und wo die Bluemli si entfalte.

Wo weiht der Liebi schöne Geist?
Er weiht im Obed-Glanz,
er weiht im Sterne-Kranz,
und wo die Meye-Chäfer schnurre,
und wo die süeßen Immli surre.

Wo weiht der Liebi schöne Geist?
Er weiht by Freud und Scherz,
und in mi'ir Muetter Herz;
er weiht by junge Nachtigalle,
wenn lieblig ihre Gsäng erschalle.

Wo weiht der Liebi schöne Geist?
Im Wasser, Füür und Luft,
und in dem Morge-Duft;
er weiht, wo si e Lebe reget,
und wo si nur e Herz biweget.
