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!

Du lockst den Klang

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Azerbaijani (Azərbaycan dili)

Du lockst den Klang 
Mit holdem Zwang 
Aus leisem Schlaf hervor, 
Und Deiner Hand entströmt Gesang 
Bezaubernd Herz und Ohr; 
Der Klänge Flut schwillt an zum Meer 
Und stimmt das Herz bald leicht, bald schwer, 
Und tausend Sterne spiegeln klar
In dieser Flut sich wunderbar.
Und aus den Wogen wundermild
Aufsteigt mir manch geliebtes Bild.
So wogst Du in den Tönen fort, 
Und aus dem Wohllaut athmet Friede, 
Und jeder Ton wird mir zum Wort, 
Und Wort und Wort eint sich zum Liede. 
So sprang dies Lied aus Deinen Händen, 
Um wieder sich zu Dir zu wenden,
Da alles wieder dahin strebt, 
Woher es kam, wodurch es lebt.
