Monteverdi's Fourth Book of Madrigals
English Translations 
What more can I give you?
My beloved, take this: I give you my heart
As a pledge of my faith and of my love.
I give it to you that you may give it life,
Do not let it die;
Nourish it with such sweet joy,
For Love made it yours, nature mine.
Don’t you see, my darling?
Upon it is carved your image.
