WERTHER
(plus accentué)
Ah! pourvu que je voie ces yeux toujours ouverts,
ces yeux mon horizon, ces doux yeux:
mon espoir et mon unique joie...
Que m'importe à  moi le sommeil?
Les étoiles et le soleil peuvent bien dans le ciel tour
à  tour reparaître, j'ignore s'il est jour...
j'ignore s'il est nuit!
(doux et calme)
Mon être demeure indifférent à  ce qui n'est pas toi!

English Libretto or Translation:

WERTHER
(more accentuated)
Ah! provided that I see these eyes always open,
those eyes my horizon, those sweet eyes:
my hope and my only joy ...
What does sleep matter to me?
The stars and the sun may well in the sky tower
to reappear, I do not know if it is day ...
I do not know if it's night!
(soft and calm)
My being remains indifferent to what is not you!
