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!

Wohl die alten Bäume wieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wohl die alten Bäume wieder
Neigen ihre Wipfel nieder
Auf das Haus am Waldesrand.
Stille, stille! Laß mich lauschen!
Fernher tönt ein leises Rauschen:
Komm zurück in's Heimatland!

Wer soll meiner Liebe lohnen?
Dort wo fremde Menschen wohnen
Geh' ich nicht mehr ein und aus.
Droben in den Sternenräumen
Unter goldnen Himmelsbäumen
Wartet mein das Vaterhaus.
