Un’aura amorosa Lyrics

Italian

Un’aura amorosa
Del nostro tesoro
Un dolce ristoro
Al cor porgerà;

Al cor che, nudrito
Da speme, da amore,
Di un’esca migliore
Bisogno non ha.

English translation

A breath of love
From our treasures
Will offer sweet sustenance
To our hearts

A heart nourished
By hope, by love
Has no need
Of a greater lure.
