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!

Aus den Thälern hör' ich schallen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus den Thälern hör' ich schallen
Glockentöne, Festgesänge, 
Helle Sonnenblicke fallen
Durch die dunkeln Buchengänge.
Himmel ist von Glanz umflossen,
Heil'ger Friede rings ergossen.

Durch die Felder still beglücket
Wallen Menschen allerwegen;
Frohen Kindern gleich geschmücket,
Gehn dem Vater sie entgegen,
Der auf goldner Saaten Wogen
Segnend kommt durch's Land gezogen.

Wie so still die Bäche gleiten,
Wie so [licht]1 die Blumen blinken!
Und aus längst [entschwundnen]2 Zeiten
Zieht ein Grüssen her, ein Winken, --
Wie ein Kindlein muß ich fühlen,
Wie ein Kindlein möcht' ich spielen!
