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!

Es schwingt in der Sonne sich auf
    Ein Bienchen in guldiger Pracht. -
Bin müde vom irren Lauf,
    Erstarrt von der Kälte der Nacht.

Ein Bienchen in guldiger Pracht,
    In würziger Blumen Reih'n -
Erstarrt von der Kälte der Nacht,
    Begehr' ich nach stärkendem Wein.

In würziger Blumen Reih'n
    Bist, Rose, die herrlichste du. -
Begehr' ich nach stärkendem Wein,
    Wer trinket den Becher mir zu?

Bist, Rose, die herrlichste du,
    Die Sonne der Sterne fürwahr! -
Wer trinket den Becher mir zu
    Aus der rosigen Mädchen Schaar?

Die Sonne der Sterne, fürwahr
    Die Rose entfaltete sich, -
Aus der rosigen Mädchen Schaar
    Umfängt die lieblichste mich.

Die Rose entfaltete sich,
    Das Bienchen wird nicht mehr geseh'n. -
Umfängt die Lieblichste mich,
    Ist's fürder um's Wandern gescheh'n.
