Lyrics
Dal vento l'aria s'allontanerà
dai prati l'erba se ne andrà
dal viso tuo l'amor
dall'alba quel chiaror,
se da questa terra io non partirò.

Dal mare l'onda si dividerà
dal sole l'oro sparirà
da me lontano tu
dal cielo muore il blu,
se da questa terra io non partirò.

Dal fiume l'acqua lenta svanirà
dal tempo l'ora fuggirà
da me lontano tu
dal cielo muore il blu,
se da questa terra io non partirò.

Dal fiume l'acqua lenta svanirà
dal tempo l'ora fuggirà
da me lontano tu
dal cielo muore il blu,
se da questa terra io non partirò.

Allora cercherò 
la terra che mi dia un nuovo grande amor
un'altro ciel per il mio amor.

Dal vento l'aria s'allontanerà
dal mare l'onda si dividerà.

>>>>

From the wind the air wiil go away
from the meadows the grass will be gone
from the face of you the love
from the dawn that pale light,
if I will not leave this land.

From the sea the wave will split
from the sun the gold will disappear
from me you'll go away
from the sky the blue dies,
if I will not leave this land.

From the river the water slowly will fade
from the time the hour will flee
from me you'll go away
from the sky the blue dies,
if I will not leave this land.

From the river the water slowly will fade
from the time the hour will flee
from me you'll go away
from the sky the blue dies,
if I will not leave this land.

So I will find
the land that would give me a great new love
another heaven for my love.

From the wind the air wiil go away
from the sea the wave will split.

‣04/06/2021 Bob Hendrikx Notes on Nico Fidenco: EXODUS (1961 Vinyl EP version) (Part 2)
Three Morricone-orchestrated versions of "Exodus":

3:41 – Exodus (released on 1961 vinyl single) – Vocals: Nico Fidenco – Play: mp3 – About this track: link
3:20 – Exodus (released on 1961 vinyl EP) – Vocals: Nico Fidenco – Play: mp3
2:15 – Exodus (released on 1962 vinyl LP) – Instrumental – Sample: link (track 9) – About this track: link

Another candidate for the 1961 EP version:

2:34 – Exodus – Vocals: Nico Fidenco – Play: mp3
This version may not sound Morriconian and lacks the listed soprano voice, but it does have the same orchestration as Morricone's instrumental version (compare with the above sample).
