Deh più a me non v’ascondete,
Luci vaghe del mio sol,
Con svelarvi, se voi siete,
Voi potete far quest’alma fuor di duol.

English.png English translation

Alas, hide from me no more,
Lovely eyes of her who is my sun,
By showing yourselves, if it be you,
You can put an end to this soul's suffering.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
