Pennsylvania German text found in the design:
Im Lechaa Daal gebt's en helles Licht wu Bethlehem heest; Meinre Hemmetschtadt.
Datt waar ich gbore,
datt watt mei Hatz am Ende leie.
Liewer Gott im Himmel drin, loss uns Deitsche was mir sinn.


English Translation:
In the Lehigh Valley there is a Bright Light named Bethlehem; my Hometown. 
There I was born,
There, in the end, my heart will rest.
Beloved Father in Heaven, leave us Dutch as we are.
