Arresta il passo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Arresta il passo, empia figlia d'Acabbo !
Ah, degli abissi pendi già sulla sponda,
la vendetta di Dio già ti circonda!

Ahimè! Qual forza ignota anima
quelle voci! Io tremo, io sento
tutto inondarmi il seno di gelido sudor.
Ah quale... Qual è la via?
Chi me l'addita?
O Dio! Che ascoltai? Che m'avvenne?
Ove son' io?

Aria (Atalia)
Nell' orror della tempesta
il timor mi veggo accanto;
nè so quanto ancor mi resta
di dolente a paventar.
Ove volgo il mesto ciglio
Ah purtroppo il mio periglio
vado misera a incontrar.
Nell' orror ... (parta)
