Che poi tu farmi, Amore,
s’in me non è più’l core?
Anz’hor più temo il tuo fiero martire,
che non trovando il cor dove ferire
Farai ne l’alma la piaga mortale,
E finirà il mio male.

German.png German translation

Was kannst du mir antun, Amor,
wenn ich kein Herz mehr besitze?
Daher fürchte ich nun nicht mehr deine grausame Marter,
denn da du nicht mehr findest das Herz, das du verwunden kannst,
wirst du der Seele die tödliche Wunde zufügen,
und mein Leid wird enden.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

What can me do you, Love,
if there’s no hjeart left within me?
Hence I don’t fear your cruel pain,
for not finding a heart to hit
you will inflict the deathly wound to the soul
and my pain will end.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
