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!

Zur Ruh', zur Ruh'

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zur Ruh', zur Ruh', 
Ihr müden Glieder!
Schließt fest euch zu, 
Ihr Augenlider!

Ich bin allein,
Fort ist die Erde;
Nacht muß es sein,
Daß Licht mir werde;

O führt mich ganz,
Ihr innern Mächte!
Hin zu dem Glanz
Der tiefsten Nächte.

Fort aus dem Raum
Der Erdenschmerzen
Durch Nacht und Traum
Zum Mutterherzen!
