. Come suol la navicella [sung text checked 1 time]

Come suol la navicella
tra le Sirti e la procella
sospirar l'amato lido,
tal si lagna il tuo bel cor.

Gran nocchiero è il dio di Gnido,
ma nel mare della speme
a fugar l'aure serene
move i nembi reo timor.

. La timida cervetta [sung text checked 1 time]

La timida cervetta,
che fugge il cacciator,
va errando per timor
per la foresta.

Tal io colma d'affanni,
in mezzo a tanti inganni
errando vado ognor,
confusa dal timor
che il sen m'infesta.

. Son fra scogli e fra procelle [sung text checked 1 time]

Son fra scogli e fra procelle  
debil legno combattuto,
sposto a' venti in alto mar.

Or m'innalzo, or son perduto,
e fra l'onde al cor rubelle
temo ogn'ora naufragar.

Base al regno e guida al trono,  
ciò che giova si comande;
le virtù, le leggi sono
freno al vil, non meta al grande.

. Ho nel seno un doppio ardore [sung text checked 1 time]

Ho nel seno un doppio ardore  
di speranza e di timore,
or sì dolce, or sì crudele,
che il mio labbro dir no 'l può.

E alla voce lusinghiera
d'una speme menzognera,
crudo amor, irato cielo,
più resistere non so.

. Io sembro appunto [sung text checked 1 time]

Io sembro appunto  
quell'augelletto,
che alfin scampò
da quella rete,
che ritrovò
nascosta tra le fronde.

Pur alfin sciolto,
solo soletto
volando va.
E libero non sa
donar pace al suo cuor,
se nel passato impegno
ei si confonde.

. Dille che il viver mio [sung text checked 1 time]

Dille che il viver mio  
col suo bel nome
io chiuderò.

Poi dagli Elisi,
ombra dolente,
pietosi baci
le recherò.

. Con palme ed allori [sung text checked 1 time]

Con palme ed allori  
t'invita la gloria,
con serti di fiori
t'alletta l'amor.

Ma, povero amante,
con doppia vittoria
invano tu speri
dar pace al tuo cor.

Quanto costi al mio riposo,

delle tue frodi,
mio caro ben.

. Liete voci, amiche trombe [sung text checked 1 time]

Liete voci, amiche trombe,  
festeggiamo un sì bel dì.
Di sue glorie il ciel rimbombe
poiché il mondo partorì.

L'aura, l'erba, l'onda, il fiore...
nacque a un punto e l'abbellì...
e di gioia dolce amore
poi lo sparse e lo nutrì.

. In sen della virtude [sung text checked 1 time]

In sen della virtude,  
contrario ciel, tu puoi
versar da' lumi tuoi
la crudeltà.

Ché il barbaro destino,
ripieno di rossor,
al chiaro vincitor
poi servirà.
