Text & Translation

Angelo custode
Al forte vincitore
E' debito l'honore,
L'honor, ch' è apparecchiato
Nel Ciel, che fa beato:
Si c'hormai da la terra,
C'havete vinta in guerra,
Volgete il cor', e'l viso,
E i passi al Paradiso.

Venite al Ciel diletti,
Venite benedetti,
Che queste sedi belle
Furon fatte per voi sopra le stelle:
Lasciate pur la terra,
Dov' è perpetua guerra;
Salite al Ciel con volo glorioso,
Dov' è pace, e riposo,
Dove senz' alcun velo
Si vede il Rè del Cielo.

Guardian Angel
To the brave victors,
honor will be given.
Spiritual honor is prepared for you
in Heaven, and will bless you.
So, from now on, from the earthly forces which you have vanquished,
turn your heart, face,
and steps to Paradise.

Come to Paradise,
come blessed ones,
there are beautiful places
ready for you above the stars.
Leave behind now the earth
with its constant battles;
Ascend to Heaven in glorious flight,
where there is peace and repose,
and you will see, unveiled,
the face of God.
