Al destin, che la minaccia

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Al destin, che la minaccia,  
togli, oh dio! quest'alma oppressa,
prima rendimi a me stessa,
e poi sdegnati con me.

Come vuoi d'un rischio in faccia
ch'io risponda a' detti tuoi?
Ah conoscermi tu puoi,
e 'l mio cor ben sai qual è.

Du destin qui la menace

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Du destin qui la menace
Écarte , ô dieu, cette âme opprimée,
D'abord rends-moi à moi-même
Et ensuite indigne-toi contre moi.

Comment veux-tu en face du danger
Que je réponde à tes paroles ?
Ah tu peux me connaître
Et mon cœur, tu sais bien comment il est.
