Text:

Dare alla Luce.
L’occhio è la finestra sull’anima.
Caro Gesù, Tu sei la Luce del Mondo.
Desidero essere pieno della Tua Luce.

Non nascondere la tua luce.
Se il tuo occhio è pieno di luce,
allora, l’intero corpo è pieno di luce.
Me se it tuo occhio è pieno d’oscurità,
allora, l’intero corpo e pieno d’oscurità.
Mantieni alta la tua luce.
Fa risplendere la tua luce per tutta la gente.

Caro Gesù, Tu sei la Luce del Mondo.
Desidero essere pieno della Tua Luce.

Translation:

Give to the Light. [This Italian saying also means “give birth”]
The eye is the window to the soul.
Dear Jesus, You are the Light of the World.
I desire to be full of Your Light.

Do not hide your light.
If your eye is full of light,
then the whole body is full of light.
But if your eye is full of darkness,
then the whole body is full of darkness.
Hold your light up high.
Let your light shine for all people.

Dear Jesus, You are the Light of the World.
I desire to be full of Your Light – Light Eternal.
