Diva fiamma dal cielo,
Dhe spira in questo core
Una fiammella del tuo santo ardore
Ch'il duro antico gielo
Ammollisca e distempre
Si che m'escan da i lumi
In laccrimosi fiumi.

Divine flame from heaven,
Ah! Touch my heart
With a small tongue of your holy fire
To soften and melt the ancient ice that holds it in its grip
And make me weep floods of tears.
