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 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Klage IV

Language: German (Deutsch) after the French (Fran├žais)

 Nichts von den Dingen allen,
 wie schön sich's immer bot,
 Nichts will mir mehr gefallen,
 das Herz ist kalt und tot.
 Glück kann ich nicht ersehnen,
 in Kummer froh und Tränen!

 Verklingen laß die Klagen,
 mein Lied, du kannst auf's Neu'
 nur stets das Eine sagen:
 Ist Liebe wahr und treu,
 wird nie der Trennung Leiden
 das Herz vom Herzen scheiden.
