Note 004
by Joachim C. Fest

The poem in its entirety says:

Fuhrer, my Fuhrer, by God given to me,
Defend and protect me as long as may be.
Thou'st Germany rescued from her deepest need;
I render thee thanks who dost daily me feed.
Stay by me forever, or desperate my plight
Fuhrer, my Fuhrer, my faith, my light,
Hail my Fuhrer!

From Chapter 15, Rudolf Hess , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
