Dopo tante amare pene
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Dopo tante amare pene  
già proviam conforto all'alma;
ogni mal si cangia in bene,
ed alfin trionfa amor.

Fortunato è questo giorno,
che ne rese bella calma;
dell'inganno e insidie a scorno
già festeggia il nostro cor.

After such bitter affliction
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
After such bitter affliction,
our souls now taste comfort.
All ills are changed to good, 
and love triumphs at last.

Oh happy the day
which brings us such calm.
Our hearts celebrate the downfall
of deception and peril.
