A te, fra tanti affanni, 
pietà cercai, Signore, 
che vedi il mio bel core, 
che mi conosci almen. 
Udisti i voti miei, 
e già godea quest’alma, 
per te l’usata calma 
delle tempeste in sen.

 Air (Ténor)
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Vers toi, au milieu de tant de chagrins,
je cherchais la pitié, Seigneur,
toi qui vois la bonté de mon cœur, 
toi qui me connais bien.
Tu as entendu mes souhaits,
et déjà mon âme se réjouit,
par toi, le calme habituel
revient après la tempête dans mon cœur.
