Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria di Bertarido
Vivi tiranno!
Io t’ho scampato
Svenami, ingrato,
sfoga il furor.
Volli salvarti
sol per mostrarti
ch’ho di mia sorte
più grande cor.
Vivi tiranno...etc.

English Libretto or Translation:

Bertarido's aria
Live tyrant!
I escaped you
Svenami, ungrateful,
the furor vents.
I wanted to save you
just to show you
I have my fate
bigger cor.
Live tyrant ... etc.
