Deh, torna alla tua luce alma e gradita
Che ti vuol dar aita!

Ah, vie sans espoir
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
Ah, vie sans espoir,
Qui en fuyant mon bien-aimé,
Tombe misérablement dans mille tourments !
Oh, tourne-toi vers ta lumière douce et gracieuse
Qui veut t'aider !
