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!

S Bohem, rodný kraju

Language: Czech (Čeština)

S Bohem, rodný kraju,
s Bohem, má dědino!
Navždy sa rozlúčit,
zbývá mi jedino.
S Bohem, můj sesřičko,
mých očí pomněnko!
Ruce Vám obtúlám,
žádám odpuštění,
už pro mne návratu
žádnou cestou není!
Chci všecko podniknút,
co osud poručí!
Zefka na mne čeká,
se synem v náručí!

Adieu, mon pays natal

Language: French (Français) after the Czech (Čeština)

Adieu, mon pays natal.
adieu, mon village !
Il ne me reste plus
que de me séparer à jamais de vous.
Adieu, mon petit père,
et vous, chère maman,
adieu, ma petite sœur,
petite fleur de mes yeux !
Je vous caresse les mains,
je vous prie de me pardonner,
pour moi, il n'y a plus
de retour possible.
Je veux tout faire
ce que mon destin commande.
Zefka m'attend,
mon fils dans ses bras !
