Or che in gioia credea viver contento
m'apre la gioia il seno,
fuggesi l’alma e’l cor, oimè, vien meno.

O sempre crudo Amore,
nella gioia non men che nel dolore,
tu sempre, o peni il core, o pur gioisca,
fai ch’amando languisca.

English.png English translation

Now when in joy I thought to live content
joy breaches my breast
my soul and heart flee, ah alas! I faint.

Oh ever cruel Love,
in joy as in sorrow,
You ever bringing woe to the heart, or happiness,
you make me languish loving.
