Glückauf (As an exclamation: Glück auf!) is the traditional German miners' greeting. It describes the hope of the miners. When mining for ore, without prospecting, no-one could predict with any certainty whether the miners' work would lead to a reward. The greeting also expressed the desire that miners would return safely from the mine after their shift. [Wikipedia].
