Deh, lascia anima homai

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Deh, lascia anima homai,
lascia le imprese vane
e le voglie mondane,
che t'an condotta
in tanti amari guai;
alhor cantar potrai
de la vera speranza
il pregio altero;
ella non ama il canto
se non scorge il cor santo:
lascia il torto sentiero
e poscia dir di lei,
volgi il pensiero.
