Oben, wo die Sterne glühen

Language: German

Oben, wo die Sterne glühen,
Müssen uns die Freuden blühen,
Die uns unten sind versagt; 
In des Todes kalten Armen
Kann das Leben erst erwarmen,
Und das Licht der Nacht enttagt.

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, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors.
