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!

Der Himmel hat eine Thräne geweint

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Himmel hat eine Thräne geweint,
Die hat sich in's Meer zu verlieren gemeint.
Die Muschel kam und schloß sie ein:
Du sollst nun meine Perle sein.
Du sollst nicht vor den Wogen zagen,
Ich will hindurch dich ruhig tragen.
O du mein Schmerz, du meine Lust,
Du Himmelsträn' in meiner Brust!
Gieb, Himmel, daß ich in reinem Gemüthe
Den reinsten deiner Tropfen hüte.
