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.

Ammenlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am hohen, hohen Thurm,
Da weht ein kalter Sturm:
Geduld! die Glöcklein läuten,
Die Sonne [blickt]1 von weiten.
Am hohen, hohen Thurm,
Da weht ein kalter Sturm.

Im tiefen, tiefen Thal,
Da rauscht ein Wasserfall:
Geduld! ein Bißchen weiter,
[Dann]2 rinnt das Bächlein heiter.
Im tiefen, tiefen Thal,
Da rauscht ein Wasserfall.

Am kahlen, kahlen Baum,
Deckt sich ein Täubchen kaum:
Geduld! bald blühn die Auen,
Dann wird's sein Nestchen bauen.
Am kahlen, kahlen Baum,
Deckt sich ein Täubchen kaum.

Dich friert, mein Töchterlein!
Kein Freund sagt: komm herein!
Laß unser Stündchen schlagen,
Dann werden's Englein sagen.
Das beste Stübchen gibt
Gott jenem, den er liebt.

Cançó de la dida

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

A l’alta, alta torre,
hi bufa una freda tempesta:
paciència! Repiquen les campanes,
al lluny ja brilla el sol.
A l’alta, alta torre,
hi bufa una freda tempesta.

A la profunda, profunda vall,
un saltant d’aigua hi fa fressa:
paciència! Una mica més lluny
hi corre alegre un petit rierol.
A la profunda, profunda vall,
un saltant d’aigua hi fa fressa.

A l’esfullat, esfullat arbre,
un petit colom a penes s’hi arrecera:
paciència! Aviat les prades floriran
i ell hi farà el seu niuet.
A l’esfullat, esfullat arbre,
un petit colom a penes s’hi arrecera.

Filleta meva, tens molt fred!
Cap amic et diu: entra!
Deixa que soni la nostra hora,
aleshores t’ho diran els angelets.
Déu dóna la millor cambra
a aquell que ell estima.
