O fortunato giorno
poi che di gioia e speme
lieta canta la terra e 'l ciel insieme:
ma quanto fia più adorno
quando farà ritorno
per Ferdinando ogni real costume
e con eterne piume
da l'uno e l'altro Polo
la Fam' andrà col suo gran nome a volo.

English.png English translation

Oh happy day
when, full of joy and hope,
both Earth and the heavens together will sing:
yet more splendid by far it will be
when every royal quality returns
thanks to Ferdinand
and on eternal pinions
Fame will fly from pole to pole,
bearing his great name.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
