Se gloria il crin ti cinse

Available translation(s): ENG
Se gloria il crin ti cinse  
di mille squadre a fronte
or la temuta fronte
qui ti coroni Amor.

Stringa quel braccio invitto
lei, che da te s'adora.
Se con i mirti ancora
cresce il guerriero allor.

If glory has now surrounded your brow
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
If glory has surrounded your brow
in the face of all your loyal men,
may love see fit in this moment
to also add her crown atop your dread figure.

May she whom you adore
grasp your mighty arm.
With myrtles surely the warrior
grows ever more in stature.
