~*For All Germans,
Living Outside Their Homeland*~
There is a word in this world,
and it lives in many hearts,
though it strengthens our own sense
it also can cause pain.
Some broke away from it,
and don't want to know it anymore,
others deny it often,
without a bad conscience.
So it goes, that many see
how fast they can advance
if this word does not stand in the way
so many things are won.
Was it not always a dear word?
Also in the past?
When scorn and denial was on our foreheads
and it brought lots of suffering.
So, think of it, when you hear it!
Come to your senses and stay loyal!
"Deutschland" is this holy word,
it will blossom again, some day!
