German.png German text

Herzlieb zu dir allein
steht Tag und Nacht mein Sinn,
dein rotes Mündelein
nimmt mir all's Trauren hin.

Dir hab ich mich ergeben,
dein eigen will ich sein,
mit dir in Freud zu leben
bis an das Ende mein.

My darling, it's for you
I'm yearning night and day.
Your kisses sweet and true
Take all my grief away.

Could we but be united
in wedlock, you and I,
My heart would stay delighted
Until the day I die.

Adorata, solo a te
penso giorno e notte,
la tua rossa boccuccia
porta via ogni mia tristezza.

A te mi sono dato,
voglio essere tuo,
vivere con te nella gioia
fino alla fine dei miei giorni.
