Per pietà, bell'idol mio

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Per pietà, bell'idol mio,
non mi dir ch'io sono ingrato;
infelice e sventurato
abbastanza il Ciel mi fa.

Se fedele a te son io,
se mi struggo ai tuoi bei lumi,
sallo amor, lo sanno i Numi
il mio core, il tuo lo sa.

Hab Erbarmen, mein schöner Abgott

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

Hab Erbarmen, mein schöner Abgott,
und sage mir nicht, ich sei undankbar;
bekümmert und unglücklich
genug macht mich der Himmel.

Dass ich dir treu bin,
dass ich unter deinen schönen Augen schmelze,
das weiß Amor, das wissen die Götter,
mein Herz, dein Herz weiß es.
