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!

Ihr Grab

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dort ist ihr Grab -
Die einst im Schmelz der Jugend [glühte]1,
Dort fiel sie - dort - die schönste Blüthe
Vom Baum des Lebens ab.

Dort ist ihr Grab -
Dort schläft sie unter jener Linde.
Ach! nimmer ich ihn wiederfinde
Den Trost, den sie mir gab!

Dort ist ihr Grab -
Vom Himmel kam sie, daß die Erde
Mir Glücklichen zum Himmel werde -
Und dort stieg sie hinab.

Dort ist ihr Grab
Und dort in jenen stillen Hallen, -
Bei ihr, laß ich mit Freuden fallen
Auch meinen Pilgerstab.

Haar graf

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Daar is haar graf,
Die eens in glans van jonkheid gloeide,
Daar viel zij, daar, die 't mooiste bloeide,
Van de1 boom des levens af.
 
Daar is haar graf,
Daar slaapt zij, onder gindse linde;
Ach, nooit meer zal ik wedervinden
De troost die zij mij gaf.
 
Daar is haar graf;
Uit de hemel kwam zij, zodat de aarde
Voor mij de hemel evenaarde,
En daar daalde zij af.
 
Daar is haar graf,
En daar -- die plek, die stille smalle,
Bij haar -- laat ik met vreugde vallen
Straks ook mijn pelgrimsstaf.
