La dipartita è amara;
Ma perché è dolc’e cara
La giunta del ritorno,
da l’infelice giorno
De la partenza ria
Nasce la gioia mia.

German.png German translation

Der Abschied ist bitter;
aber da süß und lieb ist
die Ankunft bei der Rückkehr,
so erwächst aus dem unglücklichen Tag
meiner traurigen Abreise
meine Freude.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

The parting is bitter;
but as sweet and dear is
the arrival at returning,
hence out of the unfortunate day
of my miserable departure
arises my joy.
