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!

Uf' m Berg, da giht der Wind

Language: Silesian (Schlesisch)

Uf' m Berg, da giht der Wind,
da wiegt de Maria ihr Kind
mit ihrer schlohengelweißen Hand;
sie hatt' ach derzu keen Wiegenband.
Uf' m Berg, da giht der Wind,
da wiegt de Maria ihr Kind.

"Ach, Joseph, Joseph, liebster Joseph mein,
ach, hilf mer wiegen mei Knabelein!"

"Wie kann ich d'r denn dei Knabla wieg'n,
ich kann ja doch selber kaum de Fingerla bieg'n."

Schu -- schu -- schu.

Sur la montagne, là où souffle le vent

Language: French (Français) after the Silesian (Schlesisch)

Sur la montagne, là où souffle le vent,
Là, Marie berce son enfant
De sa main blanche comme neige ;
Hélas, elle n'a pour cela pas de cordon.
Sur la montagne, là où souffle le vent,
Là, Marie berce son enfant.

Marie :
« Ah Joseph, Joseph, mon cher Joseph,
Ah, aide-moi à bercer mon petit enfant ! »

Joseph :
« Comment pourrais-je donc bercer ton petit enfant,
Je ne puis moi-même à peine plier mes doigts. »

Chuuh … schuuh … schuuh
