Lyrics
I love thee, more than the meadow where the grass is so still
More than the mulberries on the hill
More than the buds on a mayapple tree, I love thee

Arms have I, strong as the oak, for this occasion
Lips have I, to kiss thee sweet, in friendly persuasion

Thee is mine, though I don’t know many words of praise
Thee pleasures me in a hundred ways
I have on my bonnet, my cape, and my gloves
And I’ll go with thee, for thee I love

Català – Creença Amigable (T’estimo)
T’estimo, més que al prat on la pastura està tan quieta
Més que a les mores del turó
Més que als brots d’un arbre de poma de maig, jo t’estimo

Braços tinc, forts com el roure, per a aquesta ocasió
Llavis tinc, per besar-te dolçament, en la creença amigable

Tu ets meu, encara que no sé gaire paraules de lloança
Tu em complaus en un centenar de formes
Porto el meu barret, la meva capa i els meus guants
I aniré amb tu, perquè t’estimo
