Erhebung

Language: German

Gib mir deine Hand,
Nur den Finger, dann
Seh ich diesen ganzen Erdkreis
Als mein Eigen an!

O, wie blüht mein Land!
Sieh dir's doch nur an.
Daß es mit uns über die Wolken
In die Sonne kann!



Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE NOR

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.
