Pur ti miro, Pur ti stringo,
pur ti godo, pur t’annodo
più non peno, più non moro,
O mia vita, o mio tesoro.

Io son tua, speme mia
dillo dí l’idol mio,
tu sei pur, si mio ben,
Si mio cor, mia vita.

I adore you, I embrace you,
I desire you, I enchain you,
no more grieving, no more sorrow,
O my dearest, O my beloved.

I am yours, O my love,
tell me so, you are mine,
mine alone, O my love.
Feel my heart, see my love, see.
