Ognor tu fosti il mio

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ognor tu fosti il mio
tenero padre amante;
essere il tuo vogl’io
tenero figlio ognor.
 
E in faccia al mondo intero
rispetterò regnante
quel venerato impero
che rispettai pastor.

You were always my father

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

You were always my father,
tender and loving.
I want to likewise be
your pious son forever.

And in the face of the world,
I shall pay homage to my liege
in the kingdom and awesome power
that I respected as a shepherd.
