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!

David Riccio's letztes Lied

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

 Herrin! Dein sterngleich Aug' allein
 leiht meiner Seele Licht!
 Dein Mund in süßen Melodein
 Lieb' oder Gnade spricht.
 Der Liebe Sclave knie' ich hin,
 Maria! du meiner Seele Königin!

 Die Berg' in deinem Heimatland
 sind kalt und grau und leer:
 Nicht länger weil' am Nebelstrand,
 Mein Haus liegt fern am Meer
 dort rollt die Woge blau dahin,
 Maria! du meiner Seele Königin!

 Für dich erblüht die Rose dort
 der Zitherklang erwacht:
 Dann raubet nicht der rauhe Nord
 dir deine Blütenpracht.
 O fliehe bald und zieh' dahin,
 Maria! du meiner Seele Königin!
