Al par del ruscelletto chiaro

Available translation(s): CAT FRE
Al par del ruscelletto chiaro
La tua vita scorra Irene,
Compagne sian le grazie amene,
E l'amistà, virtù e fè.

Il suo rigor, le tue pene
Serbi a noi soli'l fato avaro,
E sia per noi ancor più amaro
Ond' esser prodigo con te.

Irene, dea della pace,
Conserva in lei tranquillo il cor
Del suo filial amor la face
Per lunga età risplenda ancor.

Evviva dunque la bella Irene,
La delizia del nostro amor.

Comme un clair petit ruisseau
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Comme un clair petit ruisseau
que ta vie s'écoule, Irène.
Que tes compagnes soient les charmantes grâces,
amitié, vertu et fidélité.

Que sa rigueur et que tes peines 
soient réservés à nous seuls par le destin cruel 
et qu'il soit encore pour nous
plus amer pour être généreux envers toi.

Qu'Irène, déesse de la paix,
garde la paix dans son cœur,
que le feu de son amour filial
brûle longtemps et encore plus.

Aussi vive notre belle Irène,
Le délice de notre amour.
