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!

Macht auf! der Frühling will herein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Macht auf!  der Frühling will herein,
Gelockt hat ihn der Sonnenschein;
Er ruft auf Blüthen, Blumen und all'
Euch Vöglein ruft er zum Liederschall. 

Wie freundlich die Sonne, die Lufte wie blau,
Wie pranget und leuchtet die grüne Au,
Wie singet so lustig die Vöglein im Wald,
Ei, wie sich das reget und zwitschert und schallt. 

Wie senden die Blüthen so würzigen Duft,
Wie klingen die Lieder so hell durch die Luft,
Wie mahnt der erwärmende Sonnenschein:
"Herz, öffne dich, laß doch den Frühling herein!"
