Entreat me not to go from you,

Or turn back when I follow you;

Where'er you lodge, there will I lodge;

Where'er you go, there will I go.


Your people shall be my people,

And your God shall be my God too. 

Where'er you die, there will I die, 

And I'll be buried there with you.


O may the Lord do so to me,

And punish me e'en more also,

If ought but death part you and me,

So with you e'er I pledge to go.
