Du bist ja doch der Herr

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist ja doch der Herr, 
Auf den wir hoffen; 
Zur Zeit der Noth die Burg, 
Für Jeden offen! 

Du bist ja doch der Herr,
Und doch die Liebe,
Ob nichts mehr außer dir 
Uns Ärmsten bliebe! 

Ob mitten auch durch's Herz 
Das Weh getroffen: 
Du bist ja doch der Herr,
Auf den wir hoffen!

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 about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
