Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

DON OTTAVIO
Calmatevi, idol mio! Di quel ribaldo
vedrem puniti in breve i gravi eccessi,
vendicati sarem.

DONNA ANNA
Ma il padre, o Dio!

DON OTTAVIO
Convien chinare il ciglio
al volere del ciel. Respira, o cara!
Di tua perdita amara
fia doman, se vuoi, dolce compenso
questo cor, questa mano,
che il mio tenero amor...

DONNA ANNA
O dei, che dite
in sì tristi momenti?

DON OTTAVIO
E che? Vorresti
con indugi novelli accrescer le mie pene?
Ah! Crudele!

English Libretto or Translation:

DON OCTAVIO
Yes, all now reassures us;
The hand of justice will soon arrest his course
Of guilt and folly, and we shall be aveng'd.

DONNA ANNA
My father, I've lost him!

DON OCTAVIO
What is decreed by heaven
We must patiently bear,
Oh, rouse thee, my dearest, from the sad recollection;
Brighter days are before thee, say to-morrow
Thou wilt bless my affection,
Let thy hand be the pledge.

DONNA ANNA
Ah, no, how can'st thou speak of joy when I'm weeping?

DON OCTAVIO
Ah then, since faithful love or pray'rs cannot move thee,
Too well I see that thou dost not love me!
