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!

Treue Liebe dauert lange

Language: German (Deutsch)

Treue Liebe dauert lange,
Überlebet manche Stund',
Und kein Zweifel macht sie bange,
Immer bleibt ihr Mut gesund.

Dräuen gleich in dichten Scharen,
Fordern gleich zum Wankelmut
Sturm und Tod, setzt den Gefahren
Lieb' entgegen, treues Blut.

Und wie Nebel stürzt zurücke,
Was den Sinn gefangen hält
Und dem heitern Frühlingsblicke
Öffnet sich die weite Welt.

Errungen,
Bezwungen
Von Lieb' ist das Glück,
Verschwunden
Die Stunden,
Sie fliehen zurück;
Und selige Lust,
Sie stillet,
Erfüllet
Die trunkene, wonneklopfende Brust;
Sie scheide
Von Leide
Auf immer,
Und nimmer
Entschwinde die liebliche, selige, himmlische Lust!

Un amour fidèle dure longtemps

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Un amour fidèle dure longtemps,
Il survit à de nombreuses heures,
Il ne s'alarme d'aucun doute,
Il garde toujours sa ferme résolution.

Tempête et mort, pareilles à des hordes serrées,
Menacent, requièrent l'inconstance
Un cœur fidèle oppose l'amour
À ces dangers.

Et comme un brouillard, retombe
Ce qui a tenu prisonnier les sens,
Et sous le radieux regard du printemps,
Le vaste monde s'ouvre.

Conquérir,
Apprivoiser,
Sont les joies de l'amour.
Disparues,
Ces heures.
Elles reviennent
Avec une joie bienheureuse.
Elle calme,
Emplit
Le cœur enivré qui bat de félicité ;
Elle éloigne
Les peines,
Pour toujours.
Et plus jamais
Ne disparaîtra la tendre, heureuse, céleste joie !
