Ich liebe dich, so wie du mich,
Am Abend und am Morgen,
Noch war kein Tag, wo du und ich
Nicht teilten unsre Sorgen.

Auch waren sie für dich und mich
Geteilt leicht zu ertragen;
Du tröstetest im Kummer mich,
Ich weint in deine Klagen.

Drum Gottes Segen über dir,
Du, meines Lebens Freude.
Gott schütze dich, erhalt dich mir,
Schütz und erhalt uns beide.

Te amo
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Te amo como me amas. 
 En el ocaso y en la mañana, te amo.
 Ni un solo día existió, para nosotros,
 Sin que hayamos compartido nuestros desvelos,

 Y ellos han sido fáciles de sobrellevar,
 Repartidos entre los dos,
 Entre ambos;
 Tú me confortaste en mi aflicción,

 Lloré, yo, por tu penar.
 Cuide Dios de ti, alegría de mi vida.
 Dios te proteja; Dios te guarde.
 Dios nos ampare y nos defienda.
