Quando del mio bel sol vedrans’i raggi
Ornar questi per me si ombrosi poggi
Hoggi (echo)
S’el mio ben sei ch’or lieta mi rispondi
Porgimi aita ahime nanti ch’io mora
Hora (echo)
Gratie al ciel rendo c’a mia benigna sorte
Ch’el longo prego mio qui non fu in vano
Vano (echo)
Lasso che faro dunque s’ella il core
Al mesto pianger mio ogn’hor piu indura
Dura (echo)
Come durar poss’io si crude pena
Ch’ogn’hor mi porgi tant’aspri tormenti
Menti (echo)
Dhe dimmi hormai chi sei ch’in ver io mento
S’altri che lei rispond’in questo speccho
Eccho (echo)
Eccho tal’hor si dolce mi porgesti
L’ultime note tue che di madonna
Quasi voce stimai benigna ond’io
Partendo nel mio error ti lascio, a Dio.

Als je de stralen van mijn mooie zon
deze schaduwrijke heuvels voor mij ziet sieren
- - ieren (echo)
Als je van mij bent, wil je me nu graag antwoorden
Geef me, o wee, hulp om te sterven.
- - erven (echo)
Dankzij de hemel is mijn lot gunstig
Mijn lange gebed was niet voor niets.
- - iets (echo)
Laat ik die daarom in mijn hart opnemen,
mijn trieste weeklagen, elk verschrikkelijk uur.
- - guur (echo)
Hoe kan ik zulke wrede pijnen verdragen?
Elke keer dat je me zo bitter kwelt.
- - veld (echo)
Zeg me nu wie je bent dat ik echt lieg,
Verder antwoord je in deze spiegel.
- - giegel (echo).
Hier is zo'n zoet uur dat je me gaf
Het laatste teken van jou, vrouwe,
zoals een stem, ik beschouw het als goedaardig.
Het is mijn fout dat ik je verlaat, tot ziens.
                           (vrije vertaling)

If you like the rays of my beautiful sun
see these shady hills adorning before me
- - me (echo)
If you are mine, you would like to answer me now
Give me, oh woe, help to die.
- - to die (echo)
Thanks to heaven my fate is favorable
My long prayer was not in vain.
- - in vain (echo)
So let me take it into my heart,
my sad lamentations, every horrible hour.
- - hour (echo)
How can I endure such cruel pains?
Every time you torment me so bitterly.
- - bitterly (echo)
Now tell me who you are that I really lie
Furthermore, you answer in this mirror.
- - mirror (echo).
Here's such a sweet hour you gave me
The last sign of you, lady,
like a voice, I consider it benign.
It's my fault I'm leaving you, goodbye.
