Translation for the non-Czech speakers among us:

Silver moon upon the deep dark sky,

Through the vast night pierce your rays.

This sleeping world you wonder by,

Smiling on men's homes and ways.

Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me,

Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?

Tell him, oh tell him, my silver moon,

Mine are the arms that shall hold him,

That between waking and sleeping

Think of the love that enfolds him.

May between waking and sleeping

Think of the love that enfolds him.

Light his path far away, light his path,

Tell him, oh tell him who does for him stay!

Human soul, should it dream of me,

Let my memory wakened be.

Moon, oh moon, oh do not wane, do not wane,

Moon, oh moon, do not wane...

Let go of the Thorn, hold on to the Rose

The melody and partially the lyrics is the same as in an aria of "Rinaldo": Lascia chi'o Piangia (Let go of that which pricks you), and neither was originally composed for a woman to sing, but a few talents can reach the thoracic capacity of a castrato.

Lascia la spina

cogli la rosa;

tu vai cercando

tu vai cercando

il tuo dolor.

Lascia la spina

cogli la rosa;

tu vai cercando

il tuo dolor.

Canuta brina

per mano ascosa,

giungerà quando

nol crede il cuor.

giungerà quando

nol crede il cuor.
