So che pastor son io

Language: Italian (Italiano)

So che pastor son io
né cederei finor
lo stato d’un pastor
per mille imperi.
 
Se poi lo stato mio
il ciel cangiar vorrà,
il ciel mi fornirà
d’altri pensieri.

I know that I am a shepherd

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

I know that I am a shepherd
and until now I would not 
yield my lowly pastoral state
for a thousand empires.

If it should happen that heaven 
should desire to change my state,
then it will provide me with 
other thoughts accordingly.
