Di Provenza il mar, il suol - chi dal cor ti cancello?
Al natio fulgente sol - qual destino ti fur˛?
Oh, rammenta pur nel duol - ch'ivi gioia a te brill˛;
E che pace colÓ sol - su te splendere ancor pu˛.
Dio mi guid˛!
Ah! il tuo vecchio genitor - tu non sai quanto soffrý
Te lontano, di squallor il suo tetto si coprý
Ma se alfin ti trovo ancor, - se in me speme non fallý,
Se la voce dell'onor - in te appien non ammutý,
Dio m'esaudý!

English Libretto or Translation:

What has vanished from your heart
The dear sea and soil of Provence?
What has dimmed from your eyes
The bright sunshine of your native country?
Even in sorrow,
Remember you were happy there,
There alone can peace
Shine on you again.
It was God who brought me here!
You do not know

What pain your old father has suffered!
With you away
His home has been desolate indeed.
But if in finding you again
My hopes are not in vain,
If the voice of honour
Is not silent for you,
God has heard me!
