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!

Im goldnen Strahl

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im goldnen Strahl 
über Berg und Thal 
läßt du lustig dein Lied erklingen; 
schwebest hin und her
in dem blauen Meer, 
dir zu kühlen die lustigen Schwingen. 

Wo die Wolle saust, 
wo der Waldstrom braust, 
kannst du auf, kannst du nieder schweben;
so mit einem mal 
aus der Höh ins Thal -- 
o wie führst du ein herrliches Leben! 

Liebes Vögelein, 
wär dein Himmel mein
und die himmlischen Wiesen und Auen:
flög ich auch wie du 
der Sonne zu,
ihre goldenen Gärten zu schauen.
