Ojos, herido me habeis
Language: Portuguese (Português) 
Mote.

Ojos, herido me habeis,
Acabad ya de matarme;
Mas muerto volved á mirarme,
Porque me resusciteis. 

Voltas.

Pues me distes tal herida,
Con gana de darme muerte,
El morir me es dulce suerte,
Pues con morir me dais vida.
Ojos, qué os deteneis?
Acabad ya de matarme;
Mas muerto volved á mirarme,
Porque me resusciteis.

La llaga cierto ya es mia,
Aunque, ojos, vós no querrais;
Mas si la muerte me dais,
El morir me es alegría.
Y así digo que acabeis,
O ojos, ya de matarme;
Mas muerto volved á mirarme,
Porque me resusciteis.
