Ancor che per amarti io mi consumi

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ancor che per amarti io mi consumi
In ogni parte e non a me rimiri
Tu, bramata cagion di miei martiri.
Deh, volgi homai ver me gli amati lumi
Poi che vil fango ancor rimirar suole
Senza oscurar i suoi bei raggi, il Sole.

Selbst wenn ein jeder Teil von mir

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Selbst wenn ein jeder Teil von mir
in Liebe sich zu dir verzehrt, beachtest du mich nicht,
du, die begehrte Ursach’ meiner Leiden.
Ach. wend’ mir die geliebten Augen zu, 
kann doch die Sonne scheinen auf gemeinen Schmutz,
ohne dass ihr schönes Strahlen sich dabei verfinstert.
