CONTE
Ecco, ridente in cielo
spunta la bella aurora,
e tu non sorgi ancora
e puoi dormir così?

Sorgi, mia dolce speme,
vieni, bell'idol mio;
rendi men crudo, oh Dio,
lo stral che mi ferì.

Oh sorte! già veggo
quel caro sembiante;
quest'anima amante
ottenne pietà.

Oh istante d'amore!
Oh dolce contento!
Felice momento
che eguale non ha!

English Libretto or Translation:

The musicians tune their instruments, and the Count sings, accompanied by them


Cavatina

COUNT
Lo in the smiling sky,
the lovely dawn is breaking,
and you are not awake,
and you are still asleep?
Arise, my sweetest love,
oh come, my treasured one,
soften the pain, oh God,
of the dart which pierces me.
Oh joy! Do I now see
that dearest vision:
has she taken pity
on this soul in love!
Oh, moment of love!
Oh, moment divine!
Oh, sweet content
which is unequalled!
