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!

I am thine, mine art thou

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I am thine, mine art thou,
of this be assured now.
In my hearts chamber thou art locked safely.
But I have lost the little key.
And thou within wilt ever have to be.
