Ancor che la partita
Sia la sola cagion di dolor miei,
Partir sempre vorrei
Poi ch'al ritorno tal dolcezz'io sento,
Che avanzo col piacer ogni tormento.

German.png German translation

Sei auch der Abschied
die einzige Ursache meiner Schmerzen,
scheiden will ich doch immer noch,
weil bei der Rückkehr ich solche Lust empfinde,
dass ich mit Freude jeglichen Schmerz erdulde.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Even if the parting
be the sole reason for my pains,
still I want to part,
for at my return I feel such sweetness,
that I with joy vanquish all torment.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Quoi que le départ
soit la seule raison de mes douleurs,
je veux toujours partir,
parce que en retournant j’éprouve tant de douceur,
que j’endure toute douleur avec joie.
