Occhio non fu giamai che lagrimasse
Così ragion di doglia di morire
O quanto gli occhi dolenti del mio core
Da po che morte m’ha robà il mio amore
O caro amore, o bell’amore,
o dolce amore, fin’ amore
che tien’ il mondo innamorà,
Tu sei colonna di quant’amor fu mai.

German.png German translation

Kein Auge gab es bisher, das dermaßen
weinte aufgrund des Schmerzes zu sterben,
oh, die schmerzenden Augen meines Herzens,
als vor Kurzem der Tod mich meiner Liebe beraubte;
oh teure Liebe, oh schöne Liebe,
oh süße Liebe, o feine Liebe,
die du die Welt verliebt hältst,
du bist die Säule aller Liebe, die jemals war.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
