Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

EMILIA
(Quell 'innocente un fremito
d'odio non ha né un gesto,
trattiene in petto il gemito
con doloroso fren.
La lagrima si frange
muta sul volto mesto;
no, chi per lei non piange
non ha pietade in sen)

CASSIO
(L'ora è fatal! un fulmine
sul mio cammin l'addita.
Già di mia sorte il culmine
s'offre all'inerte man
L'ebbra fortuna incalza
la fuga della vita.
Questa che al ciel m'innalza
è un'onda d'uragan)

RODERIGO
(Per me s'oscura il mondo,
s'annuvola il destin,
l'angiol soave e biondo
scompar dal mio cammin)

LODOVICO
(Egli la man funerea
scuote anelando d'ira,
essa la faccia eterea
volge piangendo al ciel.
Nel contemplar quel pianto
la carità sospira,
e un tenero compianto
stempra del core il gel)

English Libretto or Translation:

EMILIA (aside)
Innocent of heart, no word
of hate she speaks, no gesture makes,
but locks her pain within her heart
with sorrowful restraint.

CASSIO (aside)
Fate hangs upon the hour! A flash
of lightning shows it on my path;
the highest prize that fate affords
is offered to my passive hand.

RODERIGO (aside)
Darkness falls upon my world,
mist shrouds my destiny;
that angel sweet and golden-haired
vanishes from my path.

LODOVICO (aside)
His funerary fist
he shakes and pants with rage,
she her ethereal face
turns weeping to the sky.
