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 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Hör' ich seine Stimme wieder?

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Hör' ich seine Stimme wieder? 
 Weh' mir, weh' mir! welche Lieder! 
 Ach! was hab' ich ihm gethan? 
 Mitleid sollt' er an mir üben, 
 Aber nur mich zu betrüben 
 Sinnt der schonungslose Mann.

 Vor den Liedern sollt' ich fliehen, 
 Mich verbergen, mich entziehen 
 Der bezaubernden Gewalt - 
 Aber lauschen muß ich, lauschen, 
 Gierig, schmerzlich mich berauschen, 
 Bis der letzte Ton verhallt.

 Schweigt er, hallt in mir die Weise 
 Nach, gar unbegriff'ner Weise, 
 Traurig mild, und schaurig wild. - 
 Und die Träume! Wehe, wehe! 
 Wann ich leuchtend vor mir sehe 
 Wundersam sein hohes Bild.
