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

Zuversicht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nach oben mußt du blicken,
gedrücktes, wundes Herz,
dann wandelt in Entzücken
sich bald dein tiefster Schmerz.

Froh darfst du Hoffnung fassen,
wie hoch die Flut auch treibt.
Wie wärst du denn verlassen,
wenn dir die Liebe bleibt?

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.

Assurance

Language: English

You must look upwards,
Burdened, wounded heart,
Then your deepest sorrow
Will soon be transformed into rapture.

You may happily take hope,
No matter how high the floodwaters rise.
How could you be forsaken
If you still have love?
