Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Quasi lampo venesti di candor
cinta e di bei raggi d'oro.
Quasi lampo fuggesti ch'à pena
dir potea à Dio mi moro.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Als de bliksem kwam je omgord
met openhartigheid en prachtige gouden stralen.
Als de bliksem vluchtte je omdat het pijnlijk is
aan God te zeggen dat ik zou kunnen sterven.

English.png English translation

Like lightning you came girded
with candor and beautiful golden rays.
Like lightning you fled
because it's painful to tell God I could die.
