La mia letizia infondere Vorrei nel suo bel core! Vorrei destar co'palpiti Del mio beato amore Tante armonie nell'etere Quanti pianeti egli ha: Ag! ir seco al cielo, ed ergermi Dove mortal non va.
Come poteva un angelo Crear sì puro il cielo, E agli occhi suoi non schiudere Di verita de il velo? Vieni, m'adducia lei, Rischiari i sensi miei, Vieni, e nel ver s 'acquetino La dubbia mente e il cor!
