Gracia mía

Language: Spanish (Español)

Gracia mía, juro a Dios 
que sois tan bella criatura 
que a perderse la hermosura 
se tiene de hallar su voz. 

Fuera bien aventurada 
en perderse en vos mi vida 
porque viniera perdida 
para salir más ganada. 

¡Ah! Seréis hermosuras dos 
en una sola figura, 
que a perderse la hermosura 
se tiene de haller en vos. 

En vuestros verdes ojuelos 
nos mostráis vuestro valor 
que son causa del amor 
y las pestañas son cielos; 
nacieron por bien de nos. 

Gracia mía ...

Meine Anmutige

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Meine Anmutige, ich schwöre bei Gott,
Ihr seid ein solch schönes Geschöpf,
dass, ginge Schönheit verloren,
sie sich in Euch wiederfände.

Es wäre ein gutes Wagnis,
mein Leben in Euch zu verlieren, 
weil es sich verlöre,
um bereichert zu werden.

Ach, wärt Ihr zwei Schönheiten 
in einer Person,
und ginge Schönheit verloren,
würde sie sich in Euch wiederfinden.

In Euren grünen Augen
zeigt sich Eure Kostbarkeit,
denn sie rufen die Liebe hervor,
und Eure Wimpern sind Himmel,
erschaffen für unser Glück.
