by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

O come è gran martire
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
O come è gran martire
a celar suo desire,
quando con pura fede
s'ama chi non se 'l crede.
O soave mio ardore,
o giusto mio desio,
s'ognun ama il suo core
e voi sete il cor mio,
allor non fia ch'io v'ami
quando sarà che viver più non brami.
