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!

Es wollt die Jungfrau früh aufstehn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es wollt die Jungfrau früh aufstehn,
Wollt in des Vaters Garten gehn,
Rot Röslein wollt sie brechen ab,
Davon wollt sie sich machen,
Ein Kränzelein wohl schön.

Es sollt ihr Hochzeitskränzlein sein:
"Dem feinen Knab, dem Knaben mein,
Ihr Röslein rot, ich brech euch ab,
Davon will ich mir winden,
Ein Kränzelein so schön."

Sie gieng im Grünen her und hin,
Statt Röslein fand sie Rosmarien:
"So bist du, mein Getreuer hin!
Kein Röslein ist zu finden,
Kein Kränzelein so schön."

Sie gieng im Garten her und hin,
Statt Röslein brach sie Rosmarien:
"Das nimm du, mein Getreuer, hin!
Lieg bei dir unter Linden,
Mein Totenkränzlein schön."
