O hail to thee our empress, our ruler
By our unanimous consent, and
that of all Romans,
Now with this crown, we crown thee.
Now shall Asia, now shall Africa
be humble before thee.
And now let Europe, and all the seas
which belong to
This most fortunate empire
Offer and consecrate in honor,
this the crown of the mighty Roman empire.


I adore you, I embrace you,
I desire you, I enchain you,
No more grieving, no more sorrow,
O my dearest, o my beloved.

I am yours o my love,
tell me so, you are mine, mine alone,
O my love. Feel my heart, see my love, see.
I am yours, etc.
I adore you, etc.
