Già piansi nel dolóre;
ór gioisce il mio còre
perché dice il ben mio:
“Ardo per te ancor io.”
Fuggan dunque le nòie
e’l tristo pianto
omai si cangi
in dolce e lieto canto.

English.png English translation

I've already cried much with sorrow;
now my heart rejoices
because my beloved says:
“I also burn with love for you.”
Let thus my troubles be gone
and let sad tears
be turned henceforth
into sweet and happy song.

Translation by Campelli
