Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

AMINA
Oh!... se una volta sola
Rivederlo io potessi, anzi che all'ara
Altra sposa ei guidasse!...

RODOLFO
ad Elvino
Odi?

TERESA
A te pensa,
Parla di te.

AMINA
Vana speranza!... Io sento
Suonar la sacra squilla... Al tempio ei move...
Ah! l'ho perduto... e pur... rea non son io.

ELVINO, RODOLFO, ALESSIO e CORO
Tenero cor!

AMINA
inginocchiandosi
Gran Dio,
Non mirar il mio pianto: io gliel perdono.
Quanto infelice io sono
Felice ei sia... Questa d'un cor che more
È l'ultima preghiera...
Ah sì... Questa ecc.

CORO
Oh detti! oh amore!

English Libretto or Translation:

AMINA
Oh! ... if only once
See it again I could, rather than all'ara
Another bride and guide! ...

RODOLFO
to Elvino
You hate?

TERESA
To you think,
Talk about you.

AMINA
Vain hope! ... I feel
Sound the sacred ring ... At the temple and the move ...
Ah! I lost it ... and yet ... I'm not real.

ELVINO, RODOLFO, ALESSIO and CORO
Tenero cor!

AMINA
kneeling
Great God,
Do not cry my tears: I forgive them.
How unhappy I am
Felice ei sia ... This of a heart that more
It is the last prayer ...
Ah yes ... This etc.

CHOIR
Oh sayings! oh love!
