Italian Lyrics:

Per la gloria d'adorarvi
voglio amarvi,
o luci care.
Per la gloria d'adorarvi
voglio amarvi,
o luci care.
Amando penero,
ma sempre v'amerro,
si, si, nel mio penare,
Amando penero,
ma sempre v'amerro,
si, si, nel mio penare,
penerro,
v'amerro,
luci care
penerro,
v'amerro,
luci care
Senza speme di diletto
vanno affetto
e` sospirare,
Senza speme di diletto
vanno affetto
e` sospirare,
ma i vostri dolci rai
chi vagheggiar pur mai
e non, e non v'amare?
ma i vostri dolci rai
chi vagheggiar pur mai
e non, e non v'amare?
penerro,
v'amerro,
luci care,
penerro,
v'amerro,
luci care!

English Lyrics:

For the glory of adoring you
I want to love you,
O dear eyes [literally "lights"].
For the glory of adoring you
I want to love you,
O dear eyes
Loving I will suffer,
But always I will love you,
Yes, yes, in my suffering,
Loving I will suffer,
But always I will love you,
Yes, yes, in my suffering,
I will suffer,
I will love you,
Dear eyes.
I will suffer,
I will love you,
Dear eyes.
Without hope of delight,
Vain affection
It is to sigh,
Without hope of delight,
Vain affection
It is to sigh,
But your sweet rays
Who could ever gaze upon
And not, and not love you?
But your sweet rays
Who could ever gaze upon
And not, and not love you?
I will suffer,
I will love you,
Dear eyes!
I will suffer,
I will love you,
Dear eyes!
