Vatene lieta homai, coppia d'amici,
va', ti scorgi il destino
a guidar i tuoi dì lieti e(t) felici!
Giove ti presti securo il camino,
col ti rend'i feri venti amici,
e gl'influxi nemici
Vener discacci,
e con il ciel benigno
te n'aporti anchora,
a chi t'ama et adora.

Happily now go, couple of friends,
go, may Fate escort you and guide you
through happy and cheerful days!
May Jupiter offer you safe passage,
through it may he turn hostile winds into friendly;
May Venus push away
adverse currents;
and may she bring
Heaven's kindness to you
and to those who love and adore you.

Translation by Campelli
