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!

Folge mir muthig duch Felsen und...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Folge mir muthig duch Felsen und Schroffen,
Zage nicht, scheue nicht, goldenes Kind!
Alles durchdringet ein muthiges Hoffen:
Oben am Gipfel - da blauet es offen
Über den Wolken und über dem Wind!

Neben uns, unter uns Brausen und Regen!
Folge mir, reiche die Hand mir geschwind:
Höher und höher! Dem Himmel entgegen,
Näher und näher den Blitzen verwegen
Über die Wolken und über den Wind! - -

Siehst du nun, wie ich dich sicher geleitet?
Wie auf der Höhe geborgen wir sind?
Wie sich so friedlich, in Bläue geweitet,
Strahlend der Himmel nun über dich breitet
Über den Wolken und über dem Wind? -
