Io pur respiro in così gran dolore
E tu pur vivi, o dispietato core?
Ahi, che non vi è più speme
Di riveder il nostro amato bene!
Deh, morte, danne aita,
Uccidi questa vita!
Pietosa ne ferisci
A la vita dia fin ed al gran duolo.

German.png German translation

Ich atme noch trotz des großen Schmerzes
Und du lebst noch, oh grausames Herz?
Weh, daß keine Hoffnung mehr ist
unser teuer Geliebtes wieder zu sehen!
Ach, Tod, komm zur Hilfe,
Töte dieses Leben!
Mitleidsvoll verwunde es
Dem Leben gib ein Ende und dem großen Schmerz.
