Italian.png Italian text

Al mio gioir il ciel si fa sereno;
il crin fiorito il Sole ai prati inaura;
danzano l’onde in mar al son de l’aura;
cantan gli augei ridenti;
scherzan con l’aria i venti.
Così la gioia mia versando il seno
io d’ogni intorno inondo
e fo, col mio gioir, gioioso il mondo.

English.png English translation

The heavens become calm due to my joy;
the Sun gilds the meadow's flowering mane;
the sea waves dance to the sound of the breeze;
the birds sing with laughter;
the winds frolic in the air.
Thus, with my breast overflowing with joy,
I flood everywhere around me
and make the whole world rejoice with my joy.

Translation by Campelli
