Non lasciar oppressa della sorte
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Non lasciar oppressa della sorte
perir quell’alma forte
per troppo disperar.

Sollevar talor fortuna suole
Ch’io per suo gioco vuole
veder poi ruinar.

Crushed by fate
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Crushed by fate
Let not thy heart be daunted!
With courage firmly planted,
Despair not, but be great!

Only wait!
And Fortune, changing ever,
Will crown thy staunch endeavour
And bless thy low estate.
