Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

DUCA
(Ah, tutto il ciel non mi rapì!)
alzandosi con gioia
(Possente amor mi chiama,
Volar io deggio a lei:
Il serto mio darei
Per consolar quel cor.
Ah! sappia alfin chi l'ama
Conosca alfin chi sono,
Apprenda ch'anco in trono
Ha degli schiavi Amor.)

English Libretto or Translation:

DUKE
(Ah, heaven has not stolen everything from me!)
joyfully, rising
(Mighty love calls me,
and I to her must fly:
I would give my crown
to console her heart.
Ah, she shall know at last who loves her
and learn who I really am:
she shall learn that Love counts
among his slaves even those on thrones.)
