My lovely Constanze

Should I have known no other,
and have but one chance to see,
you standing by my side,
When I went across that sea,

Were I to have ten fathers,
who would have bade me not to see,
such a beautiful maiden like you,
my Constanze by the sea.

My voice is heard this moment,
in a room far from me,
had it not been for my Constanze,
I would have died and had no peace.

You were there that very moment,
I went to where we all shall go,
with your sister by your side,
telling you she loved me so.

And when I speak to him there yonder,
and tell him what you done,
he will know by then it was you my love,
who lets me live on and on and on.
