Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Salut à  toi, soleil de flamme!
Nous reviens-tu de l'Orient,
Du doux pays cher à  mon âme,
De ses paysages souriants?
Ah! Parle-moi des fraiches roses
Et des buissons ardents des lys;
Des beaux oiseaux qui se reposent,
Auprès des lacs bordés d'iris!
Qui chantent auprès des lacs bordés d'iris!
Dis-moi : le soir, près des fontaines,
Quand chaque belle entonne un chant
D'extase ou d'amoureuse peine
Qui monte au rouge firmament,
Voit-on toujours, sous leurs grands voiles,
Leurs yeux sourire au beau galant,
Qui, dans la nuit semée d'étoiles,
Viendra d'un pas furtif et lent?
Vient-on attendre à  la fenêtre,
L'oeil attentif, le coeur tremblant?
A peine l'a-t-on vu paraître,
Sait-on charmer l'heureux amant?
