CHORUS

[Di] freschi fiori sparger vogliam
l'eletta stanza, tempio d'amor,
tempio d'amor!

EIGHT LADIES
Noi pur benediciamo,
se il ciel vi benedý;
eterna vi auguriamo
la gioia di tal dý.

[translation]

CHORUS

With fresh flowers we wish to strew
the chosen room, the temple of love,
the temple of love!

EIGHT LADIES
We also bless you,
as does heaven itself;
we wish you eternally
the happiness of this day.
