Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Che fiero momento,
Che barbara sorte,
Passar dalla morte
A tanto dolor!

Avvezzo al contento
D'un placido obblio,
Fra queste tempeste
Si per de il mio cor.
Io vacillo, io tremo.

Che fiero momento,
Che barbara sorte,
Passar dalla morte
A tanto dolor!

English Libretto or Translation:

What a proud moment,
What a barbarous fate,
Pass from death
A lot of pain!

Wont be happy
Of a placid oblivion,
Between these storms
Yes, for my heart.
I falter, I tremble.

What a proud moment,
What a barbarous fate,
Pass from death
A lot of pain!
