Sposa son disprezzata

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Sposa son disprezzata,
fida son oltraggiata,
cieli che feci mai? 
E pur egl'è il mio cor
il mio sposo, il mio amor,
la mia speranza. 
L'amo ma egl'è infedel
spero ma egl'è crudel,
morir mi lascierai? 
O Dio manca il valor
valor e la costanza.

I am wife and I am scorned

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

I am wife and I am scorned,
I am faithful and I'm outraged.
Heavens, what have I done? 
And yet he is my heart,
my husband, my love,
my hope. 
I love him, but he is unfaithful,
I hope, but he is cruel,
will he let me die? 
O God, valor is missing -
valor and constancy.
