Amor opra che puoi
Che'l mio contento sia d'eterne tempre,
Ch'io gioirò mai sempre.
Amor fa ch'ella intenda
Le tue dolcezze e i tuoi diletti cari,
E che da me l'impari.
Amor falle sapere
Che chi non è soggetto al tuo gran regno,
Egli è di vita indegno.

Love, do whatever you can
So that my happiness may be of eternal kind
So that I may always rejoice.
Love, let her understand
Your sweetness, your delights,
And that she may learn them from me.
Love, let her know
That who is not under your kingdom
Is not worth life.
