Tu mi guardi dalla Croce
Questa sera mio Signor,
Ed intanto la Tua voce
Mi sussurra: "Dammi il cuor!"

Questo cuore sempre ingrato
Oh, comprenda il tuo dolor,
E dal sonno del peccato
Lo risvegli, alfin, l'Amor!

Madre afflitta, tristi giorni
Ho trascorso nell'error;
Madre buona, fa' ch'io torni
Lacrimando, al Salvator!

English.png English translation

You are watching me from the Cross
This evening, o my Lord!
In the meanwhile Your voice
whispers: "Give me your heart!"

May this always ungrateful heart
understand Your pain,
and from the sleep of the sin
may the Love at last wake it!

Sorrowful Mother, sad days
I have spent in my mistake;
Good Mother, make me return
weeping to the Saviour!
