asia felice-joyful asia-

I can now mighyly call myself joyful Asia
since my wicked enemy is overcomed at sea
but I shall be even happier when my
sons' armies will joyfully make each enemy their friend

And I now, even more joyful Africa
I shall have my dry sands full of fruits and flowers
and through lands more fertiler than ever
the Nile will bear its silver waves to the sea

And I too, joyful Europe, rejoice noless;
for more than ever, after glorious trials,
now under a true God, not a false Jove,
I shall once more hold the reins of the worls.
