Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

ALFREDO
O mio rimorso! O infamia
e vissi in tale errore?
Ma il turpe sogno a frangere
il ver mi balenò.
Per poco in seno acquétati,
o grido dell'onore;
M'avrai securo vindice;
quest'onta laverò.

English Libretto or Translation:

ALFREDO
Oh, my remorse! Oh, disgrace!
And I lived so mistaken!
But the truth, like a flash,
Has broken my base sleep!
For a little while be calm in my breast,
Oh, cry of honour;
In me you shall have a sure avenger;
I shall wash away this infamy.
Oh, shame! Oh, disgrace!
Ah, yes, I shall wash away this infamy!
