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!

Deutsche Worte hör' ich wieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Deutsche Worte hör' ich wieder
sei gegrüsst mit Herz und Hand!
Land der Freunde, Land der Lieder
schönes heit'res Vaterland!
Fröhlich kehr' ich nun zurück
Deutschland, du mein Trost, mein Glück!    

O, wie sehnt' ich mich so lange
doch nach dir, du meine Braut!
Und wie ward mir freudebange
als ich wieder dich erschaut!
Weg mit welschem Lug und Tand
Deutschland ist mein Vaterland!

Alles Guten, alles Schönen
reiche, sel'ge Heimat du!
Fluch den Fremden, die dich höhnen
Fluch den Fremden deiner Ruh'
Sei gegrüsst mit Herz und Hand
Deutschland, du mein Vaterland!
