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!

Und ich sahe den Himmel aufgetan, und...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Und ich sahe den Himmel aufgetan, und siehe
Ein weißes Pferd, und der darauf saß,
hieß treu und Wahraftig,
und richtet und streitet mit Gerechtigkeit.
Und er tritt die Kelter des Weins
Des grimmigen Zorns des allmächtigen Gottes.
Und hat einen Namen geschrieben
Auf seinem Kleide und auf seiner Hüfte also:
Ein König aller König, und ein Herr aller Herren.
Halleluja! Amen!

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Nel profondo dei cieli ho scrutato, e ho visto
Un cavallo tutto bianco e un cavaliere
I cui nomi erano Fede e Verità,
che giudicava e combatteva con giustizia.
Egli spremerà il vino
Del furore di Dio onnipotente.
Ed ha un nome scritto
Sul suo mantello e sul suo fianco:
"Re dei re e signore dei signori"
Alleluia! Amen!
