You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Vanne nel vicin tempio

Language: Italian - Sicilian

Vanne nel vicin tempio ove s'adora,
Quella che del suo Dio fu madre e sposa,
A Lei porgi pietosa calda preghiera,
A Lei che sempre è interesa à consolar,
Chi ben le chiede aita e che sassi di lor
scudo e difesa,
Vanne ed'humile orando ivi ti fia svelato,
Quel che a s'avicina ultimo fato.

Fremer da lunge io sento,
L'onda sdegnosa e il vento,
Che la procella han desta,
Onde può legno tuo restare assorto.

Volgi tuoi lumi à quella,
del mar benigna stella,
che placa ogni tempesta,
E sola scorge i naviganti in porto.
