Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


(Werther qui a écouté debout, frémissant,
les yeux grands ouverts s'appuie subitement sur le fauteuil,
et s'y laisse tomber avec un gémissement.)

CHARLOTTE
(le regardant, avec angoisse)
Ah! ses yeux se fermant!
(très déclamé)
se main se glace!
(avec effroi)
il va mourir! mourir! ah! pitié! grâce!
(avec des sanglots)
je ne veux pas! je ne veux pas! ah!
Werther! Werther! réponds-moi
(déchirant)
réponds!
Tu peux encor m'entendre! la mort
(doux et tendre, pressant Werther contre elle)
entre mes bras, n'osera pas te prendre!
(avec la plus grande émotion)
Tu vivras! tu vivras!
(murmuré)
Vois, je ne crains plus rien!

English Libretto or Translation:


(Werther who listened standing, shuddering,
eyes wide open suddenly on the chair,
and lets himself fall with a groan.)

CHARLOTTE
(looking at him, anxiously)
Ah!his eyes closing!
(very declaimed)
gets his hands on ice!
(with horror)
he will die! die! ah!pity! thanks!
(with sobs)
I do not want to! I do not want! ah!
Werther! Werther! answer me
(heartbreaking)
answer!
You can still hear me! death
(sweet and tender, pressing Werther against her)
in my arms, will not dare to take you!
(with the greatest emotion)
You will live! you will live!
(murmured)
See, I do not fear anything anymore!
