Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SCHIAVE
Chi mai fra gl'inni e i plausi
Erge alla gloria il vol.
Al par d'un Dio terribile,
Fulgente al par del sol!

Vieni: sul crin ti piovano
Contesti al lauri i fior:
Suonin di gloria i cantici
Coi cantici d'amor.

AMNERIS
(Ah! Vieni, amor mio, m'inebria,
Fammi beato il cor!)

SCHIAVE
Or dove son le barbare
Orde dello stranier?
Siccome nebbia sparvero
Al soffio del guerrier.

Vieni: di gloria il premio
Raccogli, o vincitor;
T'arrise la vittoria,
T'arriderĂ  l'amor.

AMNERIS
(Ah! Vieni, amor mio, ravvivami
D'un caro accento ancor!)

English Libretto or Translation:

SLAVES
Who is it, amidst hymns and praises,
soars to glory
like a mighty god,
with brilliance equal to the sun's?

Come: let flowers intertwined with
laurel shower upon your brow;
let hymns of glory sound forth
with songs of love.

AMNERIS
(Ah, come, my love, transport me,
fill my heart with happiness!)

SLAVES
Where now are the barbarous
hordes of the invader?
Like a mist they vanished
at the warrior's breath.

Come, oh conqueror,
receive the reward for glory;
victory has already smiled on you,
love will smile upon you now.

AMNERIS
(Ah, Come, my love, restore me to life
with a tender word!)
