Altro non è'l mi'amor che'l paradiso:
che'l paradis'è un sol sommo diletto
qual prend'in veder Dio ciascun eletto,
né altro gaudi'è nell'eterno riso.
Adunqu'il paradiso è'l mi' amor vero
che con somma letizia al cor unita,
ogn' hor veggio'l mio sol vago ed altero.
Ahi possanza d'amor, tant'infinita,
che'l paradis'ancor conded'in vita.

English.png English translation

Nothing is my love but Paradise:
'Cause the Paradise is the only one highest delight
As feels in seeing God every selected man,
Nor is other pleasure in the eternal smile.
Therefore is Paradise my real love
Where, with highest joy joined to my heart,
Every time I see my sun, distant and proud.
Ah, power of Love, so endless,
That Paradise even allows in life.

Latvian.png Latvian translation

Nav citas mīlas man kā paradīze:
Jo paradīze ir laime visuaugstākā
Ko jūt katrs, uzlūkojot Dievu
Ne citās baudās vai mūžīgās smejās.
Tādēļ paradīze ir mana patiesā mīla
Kas augstākajā priekā sirdi vieno
Ikreiz, kad redzu sauli tālu un svešādu.
Ak, mīlas nebeidzamais spēks,
Kas paradīzi dod mums jau dzīvē.
