Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Weil jetzo alles stille ist

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Weil]1 jetzo alles stille ist
und alle Menschen schlafen,
mein' Seel' das ew'ge Licht begrüsst,
ruht wie ein Schiff in Hafen.

Der falsche Fleiß, die Eitelkeit, 
was keinen mag erlaben,
darin der Tag das Herz zerstreut,
liegt alles tief begraben.

Ein andrer König [wunderreich]2
mit königlichen Sinnen,
zieht herrlich ein im stillen Reich,
besteigt die ew'gen Zinnen.

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 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.
