Lyrics & English Translation
Not love thee? Ah, ne'er believe it!
Could I accept, while my tears yet freshly flow,
The blest fulfilment of my heart's dearest wishes?
I cannot, I dare not, ah, nor seek to persuade me,
Till my grief is assuaged,
All my heart is thine own, of that be certain.
Tell me not, oh, thou belov'd one,
That thou'rt constant to me in vain,
That I love thee, ah well thou know'st it,
That I'll ever thine remain,
Stay, oh stay thy fond misgiving,
Doubt me not, oh I conjure thee;
Love and hope do both, do both assure me,
That kind heaven yet will smile, will smile again.
I send my kind and warm regards,
