SCENA TERZA
Ines e donzelle spagnuole.

CORO
Bei raggi lucenti,
dell'aure beate,
il suolo smaltato
di candidi fior:
di gioie ridenti
fragranza qui spira,
ognor qui s'aggira
la pace, l'amor.

INES
Un genio divino
ci veglia, ci guida,
propizio ne affida
d'un genio il favor.
Al lieto destino
risponda il contento,
ad esso l'accento
sia sacro del cor.

Silenzio !
Puro è il mar, sereno l'aere,
il battel già qui s'avanza,
lo dirige la speranza.
Silenzio!

English Libretto or Translation:

Nice site on the shore of the island of Leone.


SCENE THIRD
Ines and Spanish damsels.

CHOIR
Beautiful shining rays,
of the beaoured aure,
the enamelled ground
of white flowers:
of joyful joys
fragrance here,
every one here is wandering
peace, love.

INES
A divine genius
he watches us, he leads us,
propitiate it
of a genius the favor.
Happy fate
answer happy,
to it the accent
be sacred of the cor.

Silence !
Pure is the sea, serene the air,
the battel already here goes forward,
hope directs him.
Silence!
