Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ARTURO
Per poco fra le tenebre
Sparì la vostra stella:
Io la farò risorgere
Più fulgida, e più bella.
La man ini porgi Enrico,
Ti stringo a questo cor.
A te ne vengo amico,
Fratello e difensor.
Dov' è Lucia?

ENRICO
Qui giungere
Or la vedrem ... Se in lei
Soverchia è la mestizia
Maravigliar non dei.
Dal duolo oppressa e vinta
Piange la madre estinta ...

ARTURO
M' è noto - Or solvi un dubbio!
Fama suonò, ch Edgardo
Sovv' essa temerario
Alzare osò lo sguardo ...

ENRICO
È ver ... quel folle ardìa ...

CORO
S' avanza a te Lucia.

English Libretto or Translation:

ARTURO
Your fortune's star has suffered
a brief eclipse,
I shall see it rise again
brighter and more splendid.
Give me your hand, Enrico,
and accept my cordial greeting,
I come to you as friend,
brother and protector.

CHORUS
Ah!...For you we join in jubilation,
etc.

ARTURO
I come to you as friend,
etc.

...brother and protector,
etc.

CHORUS
...like a star on a treacherous night,
etc.

...brother and protector,
etc.

ARTURO
Where is Lucia?

ENRICO
She will be here now.
(aside to Arturo)
If she is bowed down by sorrow,

you must not be surprised.
Crushed and numb with grief,
she mourns her dead mother.

ARTURO
I know, yes, yes, I know.

ENRICO
Overcome with sorrow,
she mourns her mother.

ARTURO
Now settle a doubt.
Rumour has it that Edgardo
has rashly dared
to look upon her...
such effrontery!

ENRICO
Yes, it is true, that madman dared, but...

ARTURO
Ah!

CHORUS
Lucia is coming, she is coming.

ENRICO
(to Arturo)
She weeps for her dead mother.
(Lucia enters despondently, supported by Alisa and
Raimondo.)
