Beloved spouse, dearest heart,
Where art thou?
Woe! Return to him who weeps!

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

RINALDO
Cara sposa, amante cara,
Dove sei?
Deh! Ritorna a' pianti miei!

Del vostro Erebo sull'ara,
Colla face dello sdegno
Io vi sfido, o spirti rei!

RINALDO
Beloved spouse, dearest heart
Where art thou?
Woe! Return to him who weeps!

O guilty spirits from thy Erebus altar
My face on of complete contempt,
I defy thee, wicked spirits!
