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?

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary

the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
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?
