Original text:

Per questo dolce amplesso,
per quest'estremo addio,
serbami, o padre mio,
l'idolo amato.

Sol questa all'ombra mia
pace e conforto sia
nel fier mio fato.

Translation:

By this sweet embrace,
by this final farewell,
preserve for me, my father,
the beloved idol.

This alone to my ghost
would be peace and comfort
in my cruel destiny.
