Il Ritorno

Language: Italian (Italiano)

E tornato il mio bene
Hai rihavuto il core
Son uscita di pene
(à 2:) m'hà (t'hà) ravviuata Amore
Al gioir non più parole
e tornato il mio (tuo) ben
vene il mio (tuo) sole.

Oh Beato ritorno
Hai quel che brami in seno
O soave soggiorno
(à 2:) son (sei) consolata appieno
Al gioir non più Lamenti
quand'ho (mentr'hai) le gioie in sen
lieti hò (hai) gli accenti.

Oh risorte venture
O stabiliti honori
O dolcezze sicure
(à 2:) O confermati Amori
Al gioir non più Querele
il raggio del mio (tuo) sol
raggio è fedele.

Le retour

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Mon bien-aimé est de retour
il a reconquis le cœur,
les peines sont parties.
(à 2) Amour m'a (t'a) reconquis(e)
Pour la joie, il n'y a plus de mots !
Mon bien-aimé est de retour
mon (ton) soleil est arrivé.

Ô heureux retour !
Tu as sur ton sein ce que tu désirais,
Ô doux séjour !
(à 2) Je suis (Tu es) tout à fait consolé(e).
Tout(e) à la joie, plus de plaintes !
Quand j'ai (tu as) la joie sur le sein,
je n'ai (tu n'as) que des paroles heureuses.

Ô fortunes retrouvées !
Ô honneurs consolidés !
Ô douceur sûre !
(à 2) Ô amours affirmés !
Tout(e) à la joie, plus de plaintes !
Le rayon de mon (ton) soleil
est un rayon fidèle.
