Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

(Albert a rejoint Sophie
et il est entré avec elle dans le presbytère.)

WERTHER
(seul)
Ai-je dit vrai?
L'amour que j'ai pour elle n'est-il pas le plus pur comme le plus sacré!
En mon âme... un coupable désir est-il jamais entré?
(avec explosion)
Oui je mentais! je mentais! Ô Dieu! souffrir sans cesse...
ou bien toujours mentir!
C'est trop de honte et de faiblesse! Je dois, je veux partir!


(Charlotte paraît sur le seuil du temple et se dirige vers le presbytère.)

WERTHER
(l'aperçoit et très ému, changeant de ton; à  part)
Partir? Non! je ne veux que me rapprocher d'elle!

English Libretto or Translation:

(Albert joined Sophie
and he went in with her to the presbytery.)

WERTHER
(only)
Did I say true?
Is not the love I have for her purest and most sacred?
In my soul ... has a guilty desire ever entered?
(with explosion)
Yes, I was lying! I was lying! O God! to suffer incessantly ...
or always lie!
It's too much shame and weakness! I have to, I want to leave!


(Charlotte appears on the threshold of the temple and goes to the presbytery.)

WERTHER
(sees him and very moved, changing his tone, apart)
Go? No! I only want to get closer to her!
