Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

RADAMÈS
Di mie discolpe i giudici
Mai non urdan l'accento;
Dinanzi ai Numi, agl'uomini,
Né vil, né reo mi sento.
Profferse il labbro incauto
Fatal segreto, è vero,
Ma puro il mio pensiero
E l'onor mio restò.

AMNERIS
Salvati dunque e scolpati.

RADAMÈS
No.

AMNERIS
Tu morrai.

RADAMÈS
La vita
Aborro; d'ogni gaudio
La fante inaridita,
Svanita ogni speranza,
Sol bramo di morir.

English Libretto or Translation:

RADAMÈS
Words of excuse the judges
will never hear from me;
in the sight of the gods and of mankind
I feel neither despicable nor guilty.
My unguarded lips uttered
the fatal secret, it is true,
but my intention
and my honour remain unsullied.

AMNERIS
Then clear yourself and save yourself.

RADAMÈS
No.

AMNERIS
You will die.

RADAMÈS
I loathe life;
the fountain of all joy
has run dry;
vanished is every hope;
I wish only to die.
