Dir möcht ich diese Lieder weihen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dir möcht ich diese Lieder weihen, 
geliebtes deutsches Vaterland!
Denn dir, dem neuerstandnen, freien,
ist all mein Sinnen zugewandt.

Doch Heldenblut ist dir geflossen,
dir sank der Jugend schönste Zier.
Nach solchen Opfern, heilig grossen,
was gälten diese Lieder dir?
