Going to church
I don't ask you, Lord, to lighten up my burden
I don't mind the trials on earth that I go through
being down I want to prove that I am worthy
of a little spot in Heaven
Years ago my Mother taught me all your meaning
of the hardship and the pain that you went through
know you Lord, that I am ready and I'm waiting
for a little spot in Heaven close to you
Precious Lord, forget me not don't pass me by
though there must be others worthier than I
if you can Lord, here's what I'll have you do
save a little spot in Heaven close to you
If my wish is more than I deserve, forgive me
up in Heaven any place would surely do
but I've done my best on earth that's why I'm asking
for a little spot in heaven close to you
At the altar years ago we got aquainted
and as time went on the love in my heart grew
if it isn't asking too much, Lord, then save me
just a little spot in Heaven close to you
Remnants of the Fortifications
The line of the old city fortification is still visible in the map. The ring road around the old town consists of a series of streets whose names all end in “-wall” (rampart). Further inward they are accompanied by a ring of smaller streets, all named “-mauer” (wall).
Some small parts of the town wall are preserved. The lonely tower is standing next to Paderhalle.
The New University
The modern university of Paderborn is situated in a southern suburb. I have to admit that this is about the ugliest campus I have ever seen.
If anyone is interested in studying there, here is the link to Paderborn University website
This dark hole is the main entrance. Without a forest of signposts one would not even find it.
Or would you guess that the path in the photo above leads to the main entrance?
Four wings of different height surround an inner courtyard.
The wings and towers are named and marked with huge capital letters to make orientation easier (read: possible at all).
The foyer is as inviting as in most modern universities.
Another view of the courtyard, which is the most pleasant part of the building complex.
View from the third floor
In the distance you can see the steeples of the old town, Dom (left) and Busdorfkirche (right).
