Si le bonheur à sourire t'invite, Siébel's aria from Faust

Si le bonheur à sourire t'invite,
Joyeux alors je sens un doux émoi;
Si la douleur t'accable, Marguerite,
ô Marguerite, ô Marguerite,
je pleure alors, je pleure comme toi!
  
Comme deux fleurs sur une même tige,
Notre destin suivant le même cours,
De tes chagrins en frère je m'afflige,
ô Marguerite, ô Marguerite,
Comme une soeur je t'aimerai toujours,
je t'aimerai toujours, je t'aimerai toujours.
