Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Eduige
Con opra giusta io cancellar disegno
l'enormità del fallo,
a cui mi spinse cieco amor di regno;
e di salvar confido Rodelinda,
il suo figlio, e Bertarido.

Aria di Eduige
Quanto più fiera
tempesta freme,
tanto più speme
prendendo io vò.
Già lusinghiera, per mio conforto,
dice che in porto
io giungerò.
Quanto più fiera...etc.

English Libretto or Translation:

Eduig
By this one act of justice, I would cancel
the black enormity of that vast crime,
which, let by blind ambition for a crown,
I, late, committed. Nor do I doubt preserving
Bertarido, the Prince, and Rodelinda.
Fierce and more fierce, tho` tempests rise,
I raise proportion`d hopes, and go,
and place the port before my eyes,
and doubt not, safe, to lend the prize,
tho` winds on winds should blow.
Fierce etc.
