Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SESTO
Deh per questo istante solo
Ti ricorda il primo amor.
Che morir mi fa di duolo
Il tuo sdegno il tuo rigor.

Di peitade indegno e vero,
Sol spirar io deggio orror.
Pur sareti men severo,
Se vedessi questo cor.

Disperato vado a morte;
Ma il morir non mi tormenta
Che fui teco un traditor!
(Tanto affanno soffre un core,
Ne si more di dolor!)

(parte)

English Libretto or Translation:

SEXTUS
Ah, for this single moment
remember our former love,
for your anger, your severity,
make me die of grief.

Unworthy of pity, it is true,
I ought only to inspire horror.
Yet you would be less harsh
if you could read my heart.

In despair I go to death,
but dying does not affright me.
The thought that I was
a traitor to you tortures me!

(A heart can suffer such anguish
and yet not die of sorrow!)
