Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Recitative

ANNE
My father!
Can I desert him and his devotion
for a love who has deserted me?

(She returns)

No.
My father has strength of purpose,
while Tom is weak and needs
the comfort of a helping hand.
Oh God! protect dear Tom,
support my father and
strengthen my resolve.
