Dio del ciello, Signore delle cime........

God in heaven

Lord of the peaks,

you have asked the mountains

for a friend of ours.

But we pray thee,

upthere in heaven,

let him hike

in your mountains........

 

In this first verse, the choir pray God to let the alpinist Bepi Bertagnoli enter Paradise, and allow him to climb the Heaven's mountains.

The song is the hymne of all the Italian alpinists and is dedicated by the composer Guiseppe Marzi to his friend Bepi Bertagnoli, who died while mountaineering in the Dolomites.

 

You can listen to this beautiful song on YouTube.
