Min Tankes Tanke ene du er vorden,
Du er mit Hjertes første Kærlighed!
Jeg elsker Dig, som Ingen her paa Jorden.
Jeg elsker Dig i Tid og Evighed!

German.png German translation

by Franz von Holstein (1826-1878)
Du mein Gedanke, du mein Sein und Werden!
Du meines Herzens erste Seligkeit!
Ich liebe dich wie nichts auf dieser Erden,
Ich liebe dich in Zeit und Ewigkeit!

Ich denke dein, kann stets nur deine denken,
Nur deinem Glück ist dieses Herz geweiht,
Wie Gott auch mag des Lebens Schicksal lenken,
Ich liebe dich in Zeit und Ewigkeit!
