16/3/2023 The Heavy Fighter´s Duedelsheim Anthem

Joyfull singing by the Ad Flumen Caerulum delegation at Boot Camp Meadowmarsh

The Duedelsheim Anthem (Düdelsheimer Hymne) is a contibution to the lovely place, where the Meadowmarsh Boot Camp takes place. To show our deep respect and admiration to our lovely hosts it is an old traditions, that our heavy fighters sing this song at the traditional feast. To sing along we provide the german lyrics here.

Düdelsheimer Hymne

Gesungen nach der Melodie “Wo die Nordseewellen rauschen”

Wo am Seemenbach ein kleines Dörfchen liegt,

wo der Storch die grünen Auen überfliegt,

dort, wo frohe Gäste kehren gerne ein,

da ist meine Heimat, mein schönes Düdelsheim.

Wo im Mttelpunkt ein stolzes Kirchlein steht,

wo ein alter Marktplatz zum Verweilen lädt,

wo die Glocken läuten uns den Abend ein,

da ist meine Heimat, mein schönes Düdelsheim.

Wo zur Wingert hin die bunten Blumen blüh´n,

wo die heim´schen Vögel singend drüber zieh´n,

wo die saft´gen Kirschen wachsen und gedeih´n,

da ist meine Heimat, mein schönes Düdelsheim.

Wo wir feiern mit Elan und großem Schwung,

voller Freude und im Herzen ewig jung,

ja dort lass mich leben, ja dort will ich sein,

Herrgott, du erhalt mir mein schönes Düdelsheim.

Those who are free of fear may listen to a typical interpretation (given at Düdelsheim, recorded 2014?)
