Ecce homo, 1871 ~ Antonio Ciseri

Ecce homo, 1871 ~ Antonio Ciseri

He is the Just the wicked crew
In unresisting silence slew;
He is the Just; and on His head
The guilt of all the LORD has laid;
The holy Samson typified
By him who freeing Israel died;
Who yielded for a faithless wife
His mighty locks and tortured life.
~ Alessandro Manzoni -opera omnia- The Passion

Egli è il Giusto, che i vili han trafitto,
Ma tacente, ma senza tenzone;
Egli è il Giusto; e di tutti il delitto
Il Signor sul suo capo versò.
Egli è il santo, il predetto Sansone,
Che morendo francheggia Israele;
Che volente alla sposa infedele
La fortissima chioma lasciò.

Alessandro Manzoni, La Passione (vv. 25-32), in Inni Sacri, 1815.
