Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

CORO
Norma viene: le cinge la chioma
La verbena ai misteri sacrata;
In sua man come luna falcata
L'aurea falce diffonde splendor.
Ella viene, e la stella di Roma
Sbigottita si copre d'un velo;
Irminsul corre i campi del cielo
Qual cometa fioriera d'orror.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHORUS
Norma comes now, her hair
Girt with the mystic verbena;
In her hand, shining like the crescent moon,
Gleams the golden sickle.
She comes: and the star of Rome
Veils itself in terror;
Irminsul courses the fields of heaven.
Like a comet, the prophet of doom.
