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!

Ach Lieb, ich muß nun scheiden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ach Lieb, ich muß nun scheiden,
gehn über Berg und Tal,
die Erlen und die Weiden,
die weinen allzumal.

Sie sahn so oft uns wandern
zusammen an Baches Rand,
das eine ohn' den andern
geht über ihren Verstand.

Die Erlen und die Weiden
vor Schmerz in Tränen stehn,
nun denket, wie's uns beiden
erst muß zu Herzen gehn.
