Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Ferma!
Invan, invan rapir pretendi
ogni ben ch'io aveva in terra,
Ah!, che invan rapir pretendi
ogni ben ch'io aveva in terra!
Invan! Invan! Ferma!
Qui ti sfido a mortal guerra,
trema, ah! Trema del mio acciar!
Pretendi invano rapirmi quel sol bene
ch'io aveva in terra,
ti sfido a guerra,
ah, trema del mio acciar...
sì, ti sfido a guerra!
Ah! Trema del mio acciar;
invan pretendi, ecc.ff

English Libretto or Translation:

Stop!
In vain you try to kidnap
every good I have on Earth!
Oh! To uselessly attempt to abduct
every blessing I have in this world!
Stop! It's useless!
Here I challenge you to deadly war,
do tremble at my steel!
Attempt in vain to kidnap the only good
I have on Earth,
I challenge you to war,
yes, shake at my steel...
I dare you to war!
Fear my sword!
Etc.
