Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Beati ciechi voi che non vedete
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Beati ciechi voi che non vedete
E che di donne non v'innamorate;
Beati sordi voi che no' intendete,
E i lagni degli amanti disprezzate:
Beati muti voi che non potete
Palesare la vostra volontate:
Beati morti voi che in terra siete,
L'amor non vi tormenta e riposate.

Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Selig ihr Blinden, die ihr nicht zu schauen
Vermögt die Reize, die uns Glut entfachen;
Selig ihr Tauben, die ihr ohne Grauen
Die Klagen der Verliebten könnt verlachen;
Selig ihr Stummen, die ihr nicht den Frauen
Könnt eure Herzensnot verständlich machen;
Selig ihr Toten, die man hat begraben!
Ihr sollt vor Liebesqualen Ruhe haben.
