running towards the centre door, but finding it barred by the courtiers

Courtiers, vile, damnable rabble,
how much were you paid for my treasure?
There's nothing you won't do for money,
but my daughter is beyond any price.
Give her back or this hand, though unarmed,
will prove a dread weapon indeed.
A man will fear nothing on earth
when defending his children's honour.
Assassins, open that door!

He again attacks the door, is dragged away from it by the courtiers, struggles awhile, then gives up, exhausted.

Ah! You're all against me!
weeping
All against me!
Then I'll weep. Marullo, my lord,
you whose soul is as gentle as your heart,
tell me, where have they hidden her?
Shes in there isn't she? You don't answer
Alas! My lords, forgive me, have pity!
Give an old man back his daughter!
To give her back can cost you nothing now,
but to me my daughter is everything.
Lords, forgive me
Give me my daughter back,
to me my daughter is everything.
Lords, forgive me.

Gilda suddenly runs from the room on the left and throws herself into her father's arms.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

RIGOLETTO
Sì, la mia figlia! d'una tal vittoria...
Che? adesso non ridete?
Ella è là... la vogl'io... la renderete.
Corre verso la porta di mezzo, ma i cortigiani gli attraversano il passaggio.

Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,
Per qual prezzo vendeste il mio bene?
A voi nulla per l'oro sconviene,
Ma mia figlia è impagabil tesor.
La rendete! o, se pur disarmata,
Questa man per voi fora cruenta;
Nulla in terra più l'uomo paventa,
Se dei figli difende l'onor.
Quella porta, assassini, m'aprite!
Si getta ancor sulla porta che gli è nuovamente contesa dai gentiluomini; lotta alquanto, poi ritorna spossato.
Ah! voi tutti a me contro venite...
piange
Tutti contro me!...
Ah! Ebben, piango Marullo... Signore,
Tu ch'hai l'alma gentil come il core,
Dimmi tu ove l'hanno nascosta?
È là... non è vero?... Tu taci... ahimè!...
Miei signori... perdono, pietate...
Al vegliardo la figlia ridate...
Ridonarla a voi nulla ora costa,
Tutto al mondo tal figlia è per me.
Signori, perdono, pietà …
Ridate a me la figlia,
Tutto al mondo tal figlia è per me.
Pietà, pietà, Signori, pietà.
