1. Luci care [sung text checked 1 time]

Luci care, luci belle
Cari lumi amate stelle
Date calma a questo core.

Se per voi sospiro e moro
Idol mio, mio bel tesoro
Forza e solo del Dio d'amore.

3. Due pupille amabili [sung text checked 1 time]

Due pupille amabili
M'han piegato il core
E se pietà non chiedo
A quelle luci belle
Per quelle, sì per quelle,
Io morirò d'amore.

4. Più non si trovano [sung text checked 1 time]

Più non si trovano
Tra mille amanti
Sol due bell'anime
Che sian costanti,
E tutti parlano
Di fedeltà!

E il reo costume
Tanto s'avanza
Che la costanza
Di chi ben ama
Ormai si chiama semplicità.

5. Ecco quel fiero istante [sung text checked 1 time]

Ecco quel fiero istante:
  Nice, mia Nice, addio.
  Come vivrò ben mio,
  Così lontan da te?
    Io vivrò sempre in pene,
  Io non avrò più bene: 
  E tu, chi sa se mai
  Ti sovverrai di me!

6. Mi lagnerò tacendo [sung text checked 1 time]

Subtitle: Notturno

Mi lagnerò tacendo 
[Del mio destino avaro]1
Ma ch'io non t'ami, o cara, 
Non lo sperar da me.

[Crudele]2, [in che t'offendo]3
[Se resta a questo petto
Il misero diletto
Di sospirar per te?]4
