Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

O morte, a gl’altri fosca, a me serena
Scaccia con il tuo stral, lo stral d’amore.
Spenga, il tuo ghiaccio l’amoroso ardore
Spezzi la falce tua la sua catena.

Czech.png Czech translation

O smrti, tolik temná pro ostatní,
pro mne jsi jasná
Odvrať svou mocí šípy milostné
ať lásky plamen tvým ledem uhasne
a kosou svou její řetězy rozetni.

English.png English translation

O death, dark for all others, bright for me,
Drive away with your dart the dart of love.
Let your icy cold extinguish the fierce heat of love,
Let your scythe break its chains.
