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!

Du bliebest mir treu am längsten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bliebest mir treu am längsten,
Und hast dich für mich verwendet,
Und hast mir Trost gespendet
In meinen Nöten und Ängsten.

Du gabest mir Trank und Speise,
Und hast mir Geld geborget,
Und hast mich mit Wäsche versorget,
Und mit dem Paß für die Reise.

Mein Liebchen! daß Gott dich behüte,
Noch lange, vor Hitz und vor Kälte,
Und daß er dir nimmer vergelte
Die mir erwiesene Güte!

Tu me fus la moins infidèle

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Tu me fus la moins infidèle,
Au temps de mes adversités,
Et, des bons cœurs touchant modèle,
Tu me comblas de charités.

Dans ma débine ample ressource,
Tu m'a fourni boire et manger,
Linge et crédit tout plein ma bourse,
Et passe-port pour voyager.

Du froid, du chaud que Dieu propice
Longtemps préserve ta santé,
Et qu'il t'absolve en sa justice
Du bien que m'a fait ta bonté.
