Se a mitigar tue cure  
chiami un compagno al trono,
signor, di tanto dono
grati noi siamo a te.

Specchio di tue virtudi,
al popolo, alle squadre,
sarà, come già il padre,
sostegno, amico e re.

If you have indeed summoned to your throne
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
If you have indeed summoned to your throne
a trusty assistant to lighten your burdens,
we are grateful, dread lord,
for such a magnanimous gift.

He will be a mirror of your virtues
to the people and to your armies
like his father is now,
a staunch support, a firm ally, a mighty ruler.
