Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

A te, o cara, amor talora
Mi guidò furtivo e in pianto;
Or mi guida a te d'accanto
Tra la gioia e l'esultar.

Al brillar di sì bell'ora,
Se rammento il mio tormento
Si raddoppia il mio contento,
M'è più caro il palpitar.

English Libretto or Translation:

To you, oh dear one, love at times
lead me furtively and in tears;
now it guides me to your side
in joy and exhultation.

At the radiance of such a beautiful hour
if I renew my torment,
it redoubles my happiness,
'tis more dear the (heart's) beating.
