Si de mi amor aguardáis
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Si de mi amor aguardáis,
señora, de aquesta suerte,
el galardón en la muerte,
¡qué largo me lo fiáis!
 
Si ese plazo me convida
para que gozaros preda,
pues larga vida me queda,
dejad que pase la vida.
 
Si de mi amor aguardáis,
señora, de aquesta suerte,
el galardón en la muerte,
¡qué largo me lo fiáis!

Available translation(s): FRE ITA
Ist's dein Wille, süße Maid,
Meinem heißen Liebesstreben
Erst im Tode Raum zu geben,
O da wart' ich lange Zeit!

Soll ich deine Gunst genießen
Erst nach meinem Erdengange,
Währt mein Leben allzulange!
Mag es gleich um Nu zerfließen!

Ist's dein Wille, süße Maid,
Meinem heißen Liebesstreben
Erst im Tode Raum zu geben,
O das ist gar lange Zeit, gar zu lange Zeit!
