Original text and translations
Peaceful, holy, high or lowly,
May thy life be locked in mine;
Bright with pleasures, rich with treasures
Flowing from a source divine;
Calmer, sweeter, yet repleter
In its bliss as years depart,
Such, my dearest, are the nearest,
Truest wishes of my heart.
Dearly, truly, and most duly
Do I love you, and would let
All that love bears prove that love years
Cannot change, cannot forget.
Much receiving, in much giving,
I would live alone for you,
Knowing that in for you living
I shall live for all that’s true.
