Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

PERCY
Ah così ne' dì ridenti
Del primier felice amore.
Palpitar sentiva il core
Nel doverla riveder.
Di que' dolci e bei momenti,
Ciel pietoso, un sol mi rendi;
Poi la vita a me riprendi,
Perch' io mora di piacer.

CORO
Si appressa il Re: schieratevi …
Al Re si renda onor.

English Libretto or Translation:

PERCY:
Ah! thus in those smiling days
of my first happy love
I felt my heart beat
when I had to see her.
Merciful Heaven, give me back
just one of those
sweet and lovely moments;
then take my life from me again
that I might die in peace.

CHORUS:
The King is approaching: line up...
Give honour to the King.
