O che diletto
M'ingombra il petto,
Mentr'io ti vagheggio,
Vorrei cent'occhi aver,
quand'io ti sto a veder;
Quel dì ch'io non ti veggio,
per gran dolor mi manca il cor,
S'or non vuoi darmi duol,
fa' chio ti vegga o mio bel sol.

O che contento
Nel cor mi sento
quand'io ti rimiro.
Perché mai sempre
te veder non posso ohimé?
Da te lontan sospiro,
E tal martir mi fa morir.
S'or vivo mi vuoi tu
Da me non star lontana più.

Oh what a joy
Fills my breast,
When I gaze at you,
I wish I had one hundred eyes,
When I look at you;
On the day when I don't see you
For great regret fails my heart,
Now if you don't want to give me pain
Let me see you, my beautiful sun.

Oh, how happy
I feel in my heart
When I watch you.
Why ever can't I
See you every moment, dear me!
Far from you I sigh
And such a martyrdom makes me die.
If now you want me to stay alive
Don't stay away from me any more.
