Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SEMIRAMIDE e ARSACE
Giorno d'orrore!...
E di contento!
Nelle tue braccia,
In tal momento,
Scorda il mio core
Tutto il rigore
Di sua terribile Fatalità .
È dolce al misero
Che oppresso geme,
Il duol dividere,
Piangere insieme,
Il cor sensibile
Trovar pietà .

English Libretto or Translation:

SEMIRAMIDE and ARSACE
Horror day! ...
And happy!
In your arms,
At that moment,
Forget my core
All the rigor
Of his terrible Fatality.
It is sweet to the miserable
That oppressed moans,
The duol divide,
Crying together,
The sensitive heart
Find mercy.
