Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MACBETH
Pietà , rispetto, amore,
Conforto a'dì cadenti,
Ah! non spargeran d'un fiore
La tua canuta età .
Nè sul tuo regio sasso
Sperar soavi accent;
Ah! sol la bestemmia, ahi lasso!
La nenia tua sarà .

English Libretto or Translation:

MACBETH
Mercy, respect, love,
the comfort of declining years,
these will place no flowers
on your old age.
Nor should you hope
for kind words on your royal tomb:
only curses, alas,
will be your funeral hymn.
