Edition notes: Transcribed from parts published in 1571. Accidentals to the left of notes are the composer's except in m31-32, Canto, where a sharp is inferred from context and preceding material. Accidentals above the notes are added by the editor. The C# in the Canto part at m7 differs from CMM's edition: CMM has C♮, but sources published in both 1571 and 1577 (CMM cites the latter as its own source) clearly indicate C#.

Beato mi direi,
se mi mostrasse vostr'alma mercede
Quel di che fan vostre parole fede.
Ma son homai si stanco
De l'aspettar cio che'l mio cor desia,
Ch'io potrei venir manco,
In van bramando vostra cortesia.
Dunque speranza mia,
prima ch'io giung'al fin gli anni rei,
Consolatte gli afflitti spirti mei.

Blessed could I call myself
If your soul would show pity to me
On that day when your words will be trustful.
But I am so tired by now
Of waiting for what my heart wishes,
That I could abandon all,
Searching your courtesy in vain.
Therefore, my hope,
Before I reach the end of the bitter years,
Comfort my sad spirit.
