Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ASSUR
(a poco a poco girando lo sguardo)
Ma come? - e voi?...
(rianimandosi)
Là ... finor - spari! - respiro. -
Fu deliro!... un sogno - ed io!...
Io d'un'ombra! - Oh! mio rossor! -
Se un istante delirai,
Se a voi debole sembrai,
D'un avverso Dio fu incanto...
Ma atterrirmi invan tentò...
Que' Numi furenti...
Quell'ombre frementi...
L'orror delle tombe
Vo ardito a sfidar.
De' Numi, del fato,
Dell'ombre, di morte,
Quest'anima forte
Saprà  trionfar.

English Libretto or Translation:

ASSUR
(gradually turning his gaze)
But how? - and you?...
(brightening)
There ... finish - shoot! - breath. -
It was deliro! ... a dream - and me! ...
I have a shadow! - Oh! my rossor! -
If an instant you delirai,
If you looked weak to you,
Of an adversary God it was enchantment ...
But to land me in vain tried ...
Those furious Numbers ...
That shadow quivers ...
The horror of the tombs
I dare hard to challenge.
De 'Numi, of fate,
Of the shadow, of death,
This strong soul
He will know how to triumph.
