Dissi a l'amata mia, lucida stella
Che più d'ogn' altra luce,
Ed al mio cor adduce
Fiamme, strali e catene,
Ch'ogn'hor mi danno pene:
"Deh! morirò, cor mio.
Sì, morirai, ma non per mio desio."

English.png English translation

I told my love, shining star
Who is stronger than any other light,
And to my heart draws
Flames, arrows and chains,
That every hour give me pains:
"Ah, I will die, my heart.
Yes, you will die, but not because of my desire."

German.png German translation

Ich sagte zu meinem geliebten klaren Stern,
daß er mehr als alle anderen leuchte
und meinem Herzen zufüge
Flammen, Strahlen und Ketten,
die mir alle Zeit Qualen bringen.
Ach, ich werde sterben, mein Herz,
auch du wirst sterben, aber nicht für mich, Geliebte.
Translation by Peter Rottländer

Dije a mi amada y brillante estrella,
que refulge más que ninguna
y que a mi corazón arroja
llamas, saetas y cadenas
causándome penas sin cesar:
"¡Ay, moriré, corazón mio!"
"¡Sí que morirás, pero no por mi deseo!"
