Ah rammenta o bella Irene

Set by Gaetano Donizetti (1797 - 1848), "Ah rammenta o bella Irene" [ sung text checked 1 time]

Note: this setting is made up of several separate texts.

Ah! rammenta, o bella Irene,
Che giurasti a me costanza.
Ah ritorna, amato bene,
Ah ritorna al primo amor,
Qual conforto, oh! Dio, m'avanza,
Chi sarà la mia speranza?
Per chi viver più degg'io,
Se più mio non è quel cor?

Chi mai di questo core
Saprà le vie secrete,
Se voi non le sapete,
[Begli occhi]1 del mio ben?

Voi, che dal primo istante,
Quando divenni amante,
Il mio nascosto [amore]2
Mi conosceste in sen?
