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!

Seit Monden wohl, seit langen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Seit Monden wohl, seit langen, 
Gretlin, gedenk ich dein,
Nun hab' ich dich gefangen,
Gretlin, nun bist du mein!

Es ging vor deinen Handen 
Mein Herz ohn' Schlüßlein auf! 
Lug' aus nach allen Landen
Bergunter und bergauf:

Hier herrsch' ich über die Erden 
In Sonnenschein und Sturm --
Magst du mein Schwälblein werden 
Und nisten auf meinem Thurm?

Mein Haus ist hoch erhaben,
Mein Werk ist hoch gestellt --
Und lieber kunnt' keiner haben 
Dich drunten in der Welt.
