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.

Und dennoch ist er mein Herz,
mein Mann, meine Liebe,
