Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Unulfo
Col tuo aiuto e consiglio
non difficil si rende a me l`impresa,
a morte il sottrarrà quest`alma ardita,
e fia troppo ben spesa,
per salvarla al mio re, questa mia vita.
Un zeffiro spirò
Che serenò quest'alma,
e calma vi portò.
S'io salvo il mio signore
Altro non brama il core,
e pace allor avrò.
Un zeffiro...etc.
(parte)

English Libretto or Translation:

Unulfo
Bless`d with your aid and counsel, I can’t find it
an enterprise too difficult; `twill joy my soul,
to draw so brave a hero from his fate.
and if I could but save my lord and master,
my life were, too well, spent in such a cause.
Hopes, like Zephirs, gently blowing,
sweet refreshments still bestowing,
set my troubl`d heart at ease.
O could I my sovereign save,
I no greater bliss could crave,
cou`d enjoy no firmer peace.
Hopes etc.
