Delizie contente, che l’alma beate fermate.
Su questo mio core deh più,
deh più non stillate le gioie d’amore.
Delizie mie care, fermatevi qui:
non so più bramare, mi basta così.
In grembo agli amori fra dolci catene morir,
morir mi conviene, dolcezza omicida a morte,
a morte mi guida, mi guida in braccio al mio bene.
