Torna, mio ben, ascolta.   Come back, darling, hear me.
Il tuo fedel son io.       I am your faithful love.
Amami pur, ben mio;        Love me too, my beloved;
no non t'inganna amor.     no,love doesn't deceive yuo.
Quella,che in seno accolta Prepare the rare vitue
serbi vitù sì rara         that you hide in your soul
a gareggiar prepara        to rival
con l'innocente cor.       with the innocent heart.
