Per questa bella mano,
Per questi vaghi rai
Giuro, mio ben, che mai
Non amerò che te.

L'aure, le piante, i sassi,
Che i miei sospir ben sanno,
A te qual sia diranno
La mia costante fè.

Volgi lieti o fieri sguardi,
Dimmi pur che m'odi o m'ami,
Sempre acceso ai dolci dardi,
Sempre tuo vo' che mis chiami,
Né cangiar può terra o cielo
Quel disio che vive in me.
By this beautiful hand,
by these lovely eyes,
I vow, my love, that I
shall never love another.

The winds, the flowers, the rocks,
who are well acquainted with my sighs,
will tell you anyhow
of my constant faith.

Should your looks be kind or cruel,
should you say you love or hate me,
I shall ever submit to your sweet wounding,
ever want to call you my own;
neither heaven nor earth can change
this desire that lives in me.
