Mit dir

Language: German

Hinaus in weite Ferne, auf Meereswogen hin,
hin über Berge und Täler, so weit die Wolken zieh'n,
weit fort vom Heimatland,
hin zu dem fernsten Strand
geh' ich mit dir.

Hin nach der Eiseszone, so starr so kalt und öd,
zur Wüste, wo kein Bäumchen dir Schatten bietend steht,
und droht des Samums Hauch 
Tod und Verderben auch,
ich geh' mit dir.

Uns wär's zum dunk'len Kerker, ich bleibe nicht zurück,
denn nur in deinem Dienste find' ich der Freiheit Glück!
Was mir auch immer droht,
und wär's der kalte Tod,
ich geh' mit dir.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
