Italian.png Italian text

Se la mia morte brami, crudel, lieto ne moro.
E dopo morte ancor te solo adoro.
Ma se vuoi che non t'ami, ahi, che a pensarlo solo
Il duol m'ancide e l'alma fugge a volo.

German.png German translation

Wenn du meinen Tod herbeiwünschst, Grausame, sterbe ich fröhlich.
Und auch nach dem Tode verehre ich nur dich.
Wenn du aber willst, daß ich dich nicht lieben solle, ach, allein daran zu denken
Tötet mich der Schmerz und die Seele enteilt im Fluge.
