Düfte wogen auf und nieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Düfte wogen auf und nieder,
In den Lüften süsser Schall,
Stille Blumen, laute Lieder,
Engel Gottes überall!

Und schon ward mein Herz zur Blume
Und der Blume Duft zum Lied,
Das im klaren Heiligtume
Aufwärts mit den Engeln zieht!

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 was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
