Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

WERTHER
Vous l'avez dit:
Mon âme est loyale et sincère,
(contenant à  peine son émotion)
...si j'avais du passé trop amer souvenir,
retirant cette main qui la serre,
je fuirais loin de vous pour ne plus revenir!
Mais, comme après l'orage une onde est apaisée,
mon coeur ne souffre plus de son rêve oublié,
et celui qui sait lire au fond de ma pensée...
n'y doit trouver jamais que la seule amitié
et ce sera ma part de bonheur sur la terre.

English Libretto or Translation:

WERTHER
You said it:
My soul is loyal and sincere,
(barely containing his emotion)
... if I had bitter memories,
withdrawing that hand that squeezes it,
I would flee away from you and never come back!
But, as after the storm a wave is appeased,
my heart no longer suffers from his forgotten dream,
and whoever knows how to read in my mind ...
must never find that the only friendship
and it will be my share of happiness on the earth.
