Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Rodelinda
Con quai risalti, oh Dio!
Dentro del petto mio palpita il core,
non so, se per la gioia, o pel dolore.
Ritorna oh caro e dolce mio tesoro,
a dar conforto e speme a questo cor!
Tu renderai al seno mio la calma,
se refrigerio sei d'ogni dolor.
Ritorna...etc.

English Libretto or Translation:

Rodelinda
What do these strange, unusual heavings
mean, like as `twere somewhat boding in my soul?
My heart beats fast and flatters in my breast,
whether `tis caus`d by joy or fear, I know not.
Return my dear, my life return,
return my joy, my treasure.
This hopeless heart shan`t pant and mourn,
but pant and dance for pleasure.
Come my love, come quick away,
then to relieving,
me from grieving,
joy shall sorrow overpay.
