Aria

TOM
(He stands up)
Venus! My queen! My bride!
At last. I have waited for thee so long,
till I almost believed those madmen
who blasphemed against thy honour.
They are rebuked.
Mount, Venus, mount thy throne.

(Anne sits down on the straw mattress. Tom kneels
down)

Oh merciful goddess!,
hear the confession of my sins.
