Chi vi mira renea,
donna non già, ma Dea,
a le gioie rinasce ed ai diletti,
dunque ogni amante affretti
mille volte morire, acciò che poi
mille volte rinaschi a mirar voi.

German.png German translation

Wer Euch anschaut, Wiedergeborene,
Frau noch nicht, aber Göttin,
lebt wieder auf zu Lust und Freude,
daher möge sich jeder Liebende beeilen,
tausendmal zu sterben, damit er dann
tausendmal wiedergeboren werde, Euch zu schauen.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

He who beholds you, reborn,
not yet woman, but goddess,
revives to delight and joy,
therefore each love shall haste
to die a thousand times, that
he may then be reborn a thousand times to behold you-

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
