Original


L’aurora di bianco vestita
già l’uscio dischiude al gran sol,
di già con le rosee sue dita
carezza de’ fiori lo stuol.

Commosso da un fremito arcano
intorno il creato già par
e tu non ti desti, ed invano
mi sto qui dolente a cantar.

Metti anche tu la veste bianca
e schiudi l’uscio al tuo cantor!
Ove non sei, la luce manca,
ove tu sei, nasce l’amor.

Metti anche tu la veste bianca
e schiudi l’uscio al tuo cantor!
Ove non sei, la luce manca,
ove tu sei, nasce l’amor.

Translation


The dawn, wearing a white dress,
it's already allowing the sun to cross the threshold;
It's already caressing with her pink fingers
the crowd of flowers.

The Creation all around seems moved by
an arcane shiver;
and you are not getting up, and
I'm singing painfully in vain.

Put you white gown on
and let your cantor cross the threshold!
Light lacks where you are missing,
Love is born where you are.

Put you white gown on
and let your cantor cross the threshold!
Light lacks where you are missing,
Love is born where you are.
