1  Se ben l’ardor ch’io sento
Ecced’ogni tormento,
Rivecend’il mio bene
Cesseran i sospir, gl’affanni e pene.

2  Se ben l'empio dolore
Ma affligge a tutte l'hore,
Rivendendo il bel viso,
L'infern'ov' hora son, fia un Paradiso.

3  Se ben l'ardore foco
M'abbruggi a poco a poco,
Rivendendo la fiamma
Scemar o l'ardor che m'ard'e infiamma.

4  Ma se l'empia mia sorte,
Per darmi eterna morte,
Fa ch'ella d'altrui fia,
D'ogni altra fia, maggior la pena mia.
