Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CORO INTERNO DI RELIGIOSE
Ah!... se l'error t'ingombra,
O figlia d'Eva, i rai,
Presso a morir, vedrai
Che un'ombra, un sogno fu,
Anzi del sogno un'ombra
La speme di quaggiù!
Vieni e t'asconda il velo
Ad ogni sguardo umano!
Aura o pensier mondano
Qui vivo più non è.
Al ciel ti volgi e il cielo
Si schiuderà per te.

English Libretto or Translation:

NUNS
Ah, daughter of Eve,
if error blinds your eyes,
as death nears you'll see
that it was a shadow, a dream:
nay, but the shadow of a dream
is our yearning here below!

NUNS
Come, let the veil hide you
from every human eye,
no worldly air or thought
can live in here any more!
Turn to heaven, and heaven
will be disclosed to you.
