O amore, o bella luce, Fritz's aria from L'Amico Fritz

O amore, o bella luce del core,
  fiammella eterna, che il mondo ha in sè.
  Mesta carezza, lieto dolore,
         la vita è in te!
Blanda è la luce che a notte scende,
  sfolgora il sole possente ognor,
  pure il tuo raggio su tutti splende,
         luce del cor!
Oh! Splendi, eterna limpida face,
  spanditi, o palpito generator!
  Oh! Canta, canta l'inno di pace,
         la vita è amor!
