Ecco ch'io lass'il core
A chi nutrisce il suo del mio dolore.
Deh come vivrò io
Lungi d'ogni ben mio?
Dunque morrom-mi, e perché chi m'annoia
Viva della mia mort'in maggior gioia.
 

English.png English translation

Here I give my heart
to one who feeds hers on my sorrow.
Alas, how will I live
far from my trea-sure?
Therefore I will die, so that the one who tortures me
can live in greater joy because of my death.
(Tr. Ruth I. DeFord)
