Text & Translation

Angelo custode
Fortissimi guerrieri,
Che gli nemici alteri
Havere discacciato,
M'hà qui'l Signor mandato,
Ch'in ogni impresa forte
Il cor vi riconforte.
Altra pugna vi resta
Faticosa, e molesta,
Ma non temete punto,
Che son per voi qui giunto.
E in ogni caso strano
Vi porgerò la mano.
Altri doman le fiere,
Altri trionfan de le genti altiere,
Ma sopra ogni guerriero
Fort' è, chi vince il senso lusinghiero.

Guardian Angel
Brave warriors,
who have driven away
treacherous enemies,
God has sent me here
so that in every difficult enterprise
your heart will be comforted.
Another battle remains for you,
exhausting and troubling,
but don't fear for even a moment,
now that I have joined you.
For in each strange situation
I will hold out my hand to you.
Some conquer the proud,
some triumph over haughty nations,
but stronger than any other warrior is
one who masters his tempting senses.
