IDOMENEO
O king of the sea, receive our prayers;
abate your anger, your severity.

O king of the sea, receive our prayers;
abate your anger, your severity.

Let the east and south winds return to their caves:
let the gentle breeze return to the sea and
the fury cease! Accept the heartfelt repentance
of your devotees, and grant us your favour.

O king of the sea, etc.

Resounding victory!
Eternal is your glory!
Triumph, o lord!
