Après avoir perdu ma bien-aimée,
ce sera un grand réconfort pour moi
de perdre aussi
le funeste souvenir ;
mais, ô dieux, il reste,
et celui qui fut si heureux dans l'amour
ne peut l'être même dans l'Élysée.

J'ai perdu ma bien-aimée,
Les ténèbres sont mon jour,
pitié pour ma douleur.
Qu'à mon martyr s'unisse 
Votre souffrance,
secourez ce cœur,
secourez ma douleur.
