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.

Tendre amour
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Je t'aime comme tu m'aimes,
Le soir et le matin,
Il n'y a pas de jour où toi et moi
Ne partagions pas nos peines.

Et quand elles étaient pour toi et moi
Elles devenaient légères à supporter.
Tu me réconfortais dans mon chagrin,
Je pleurais dans tes plaintes.

Donc, que la bénédiction de Dieu soit sur toi,
Toi, la joie de ma vie.
Que Dieu te protège, te garde pour moi,
Nous protège et nous garde tous les deux.
