Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SEMIRAMIDE
Già  il perfido discese:
Fra queste opache tenebre celato
Attende la sua vittima. - Ma armato
È il braccio d'una madre. - O tu... che sposo
Io più nomar non oso, accogli intanto
D'un cor pentito e desolato il pianto.
Al mio pregar t'arrendi:
Il figlio tuo difendi;
Perdonami una volta,
Abbi di me pietà .
(Resta sospirosa a piè della tomba di Nino).

English Libretto or Translation:

Semiramide
Already the treacherous descents:
Among these opaque, hidden darkness
He awaits his victim. - But armed
It is a mother's arm. - O you ... that bridegroom
I no longer dares, I welcome in the meantime
The cry is weeping and desolate.
To my pray you surrender:
Defend your son;
Forgive me once,
Have mercy on me.
(It remains sighing at the foot of Nino's tomb).
