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. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Von edler Art

Language: German (Deutsch)

Von edler Art,
Auch rein und zart,
Bist du ein Kron,
Der ich mich han
Ergeben gar,
Glaub mir fürwahr;
Das Herz in mir
Kränkt sich nach dir,
Darum ich b'gehr
Auf all dein Ehr:
Hilf mir, ich hab nicht Trostes mehr.

Wie ich ihm tu,
Hab ich kein Ruh,
Ohn dein Gestalt,
Die mich mit G'walt
Gefangen hat:
Herzlieb gib Rat,
Des ich mich doch
Zu dir versieh
In Hoffnung viel,
Nit mehr ich will,
Allein setz mir ein gnädigs Ziel.

Seit du die bist,
gen der ich List
nit brauchen soll,
das weisst du wohl:
ohn allen Scherz
will dir mein Herz
in Treuen sein,
darum ich dein
kein Stund im Tag
vor Leid und Klag,
auch rechter Lieb vergessen mag.
