Luci care, luci belle
Cari lumi amate stelle
Date calma a questo core.

Se per voi sospiro e moro
Idol mio, mio bel tesoro
Forza e solo del Dio d'amore.

Due pupille amabili
M'han piegato il core
E se pietà non chiedo
A quelle luci belle
Per quelle, sì per quelle,
Io morirò d'amore.

Più non si trovano
Tra mille amanti
Sol due bell'anime
Che sian costanti,
E tutti parlano
Di fedeltà!

E il reo costume
Tanto s'avanza
Che la costanza
Di chi ben ama
Ormai si chiama semplicità.

  E tu, chi sa se mai
  Ti sovverrai di me!

Il misero diletto
Di sospirar per te?]4
