Vedrò con mio diletto Lyrics

Vedrò con mio diletto

Vedrò con mio diletto
l’alma dell’alma mia
Il core del mio cor pien di contento.
E se dal caro oggetto
lungi convien che sia
Sospirerò penando ogni momento…

I will see with joy

I will see with joy,
the soul of my soul
heart of my heart full of content.
And if from my dear object
I will be far away
I’ll be sighing, suffering every moment…
