Arranged by Drew Jurecka
Written by Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643), from his opera L'incoronazione di Poppea


Pur ti miro, Pur ti godo,

Pur ti stringo, Pur t'annodo,

Più non peno, 
Più non moro,

O mia vita,o mi tesoro.

Io son tua… 
tuo son io…

Speme mia, dillo, dì,

L'idol mio, Sì, mio ben, 

Sì, mio cor, mia vita, sì.

I gaze at you, I delight in you
I tighten closer to you
I am bound to you
I no longer suffer, I no longer die
Oh my life, Oh my treasure.

I am yours....you are mine..
You are my hope, Say it always
My idol, Yes my beloved
Yes my heart, My life, yes
