Sorge nel petto
Language: Italian (Italiano)

Sorge nel petto
Certo diletto
Che bella calma
Promette al cor.

Sarà il contento,
Doppo gran stento
Coglier la palma
Del nostro ardor.

Within my breast
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Within my breast,
a certain delight arises
that promises sweet repose
unto my heart.

After such privation,
Attaining the goal for which we long
will be sheer contentment.
