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!

Wie klang aus deinem Munde

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Wie klang aus deinem Munde
 Das Ja so wunderbar?
 Ich bin nun zwei geworden,
 Der ich so einsam war.

 Wie klang es aus deinem Munde
 Beseligend meinem Ohr?
 Ich habe Ruhe gefunden,
 Da ich in dir mich verlor.

 Mein Kind, mein Weib, mein Liebchen,
 Mein süßes Eigentum,
 Du meines Laubes Blume,
 Du meine Freude, mein Ruhm!

 Dein Kind, dein Weib, dein Liebchen,
 Und deine Magd, und dein!
 Mein teurer Herr, mein Gebieter,
 Du Vielgeliebter mein!

 Wie anders ergeht in die Zukunft
 Sich nun der Gedanken Flug!
 Nun gilt es, stark zu erhalten,
 Beharrlich, besonnen und klug.

 Vergessen aller Zeiten
 An deiner lieben Brust!
 Der Gegenwart genießen
 In süßer himmlischer Lust!

 Wirf, segenreicher Vater,
 Den Blick auf die Kinder dein,
 Und laß ihre fromme Liebe
 Ein Dankgebet dir sein.
