Words by Dr. Luis A. Baralt. Music by Julius E. Andino.

Couldst thou but think how much I love, couldst thou but feel how I love thee,
How to forget thee once I strove, thou would'st not be so cruel to me.
I love thee so that I would give all earthly treasures for thy heart:
If it were mine, I would forgive all thou hast done to make us part;
And I loved on-in vain I tried to chase this passion from my soul.
In vain all things have with it vied; nothing could heal, nothing console.
This heart so true, this love so deep, by faith and hope divinely blest.
Wilt thou with heartless cruelty, steep in gloom too dark to be expressed?

oh! my darling, you have raised me,
With one look, from my state of deep gloom;
oh! my beauty, you have braced me,
With one smile, that my soul does consume;
Now forever happy lovers,
We shall go heart in heart, hand in hand.
Bright shall be what heaven covers,
And a heaven shall be where we stand.
