Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

GERMONT
Di Provenza il mar, il suol - chi dal cor ti cancello?
Al natio fulgente sol - qual destino ti furò?
Oh, rammenta pur nel duol - ch'ivi gioia a te brillò;
E che pace colà sol - su te splendere ancor può.
Dio mi guidò!
Ah! il tuo vecchio genitor - tu non sai quanto soffrì
Te lontano, di squallor il suo tetto si coprì
Ma se alfin ti trovo ancor, - se in me speme non fallì,
Se la voce dell'onor - in te appien non ammutì,
Dio m'esaudì!

English Libretto or Translation:

GERMONT
What has vanished from your heart
The dear sea and soil of Provence?
What has dimmed from your eyes
The bright sunshine of your native country?
Even in sorrow,
Remember you were happy there,
There alone can peace
Shine on you again.
It was God who brought me here!
You do not know

What pain your old father has suffered!
With you away
His home has been desolate indeed.
But if in finding you again
My hopes are not in vain,
If the voice of honour
Is not silent for you,
God has heard me!
