by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

D’ogni colpa la colpa maggiore
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
D’ogni colpa la colpa maggiore
è l’eccesso d’un empio timore,
oltraggioso all’eterna pietà.

Chi dispera non ama, non crede:
ché la fede, l’amore, la speme
son tre faci che splendono insieme,
né una ha luce se l’altra non l’ha.
