Lied
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Brüder, schrecklich brennt die Träne,
Die verschämte Armut weint;
Findet diese Jammerszene
Unter uns wohl keinen Freund?
Der Verzweiflung preisgegeben
Ringt die welken Hände sie;
Kommt, erleichtert heut' ihr Leben
Durch des Mitleids Sympathie.
