Da voi, cari lumi
Language: Italian (Italiano)
Da voi, cari lumi,
Dipende il mio stato:
Voi siete i miei Numi:
Voi siete il mio fato:
A vostro talento
Mi sento cangiar.
Se lieti splendete;
Se torbidi siete,
Mi fate tremar.

De vous, chers astres
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
De vous, chers astres,
dépend mon sort ;
vous êtes mes dieux,
vous êtes mon destin :
à votre aspect
je vais changeant.
Vous m'inspirez courage,
quand vous brillez joyeux ;
quand vous êtes assombris,
vous me faites trembler.
