Benedetta sia la madre

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Benedetta sia la madre,
Che ti fece cosí bella.
Piú di te gentil donzella
Piú di te non so bramar.

Tu sei la piú graziosa,
Tu sei la piú vezzosa.
Tu sei la gioia mia,
Benedetta sei tu.

Ammirando la vaghezza
Di bellezza cosí rara,
Ti confesso, mia cara,
Mi facesti sospirar,

E nel petto mi sentii
Una fiamma sí vivace,
Che disturba la mia pace
Mi fa sempre [delirar]1.
