Al par del ruscelletto chiaro

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Al par del ruscelletto chiaro
La tua vita scorra Irene,
Compagne sian le grazie amene,
E l'amistà, virtù e fè.

Il suo rigor, le tue pene
Serbi a noi soli'l fato avaro,
E sia per noi ancor più amaro
Ond' esser prodigo con te.

Irene, dea della pace,
Conserva in lei tranquillo il cor
Del suo filial amor la face
Per lunga età risplenda ancor.

Evviva dunque la bella Irene,
La delizia del nostro amor.

Com un clar petit rierol

Language: Catalan (Català) after the Italian (Italiano)

Com un clar petit rierol
flueix la teva vida, Irene,
que els teus companys siguin el plaent encís
i l’amistat, virtut i fidelitat.

Que el seu rigor, les teves penes,
el destí cruel les servi només per a nosaltres
i que ens siguin encara més amargs
per ser pròdigs amb tu.

Que Irene, deessa de la pau,
mantingui tranquil el seu cor,
que la torxa del seu amor filial
resplendeixi per molt de temps encara.

Visca doncs la bella Irene,
la delícia del nostre amor.
