La mort de Sardanapale

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Sardanapale et chœur (ensemble)

 [...] jamais la mémoire.
 Non, l'enivrante volupté
 A pu dans le sommeil me ravir la victoire,
 Mais non pas ma fierté.
 Jadis la gloire et les plaisirs
 Faisaient la douceur de ma vie;
 Un sort cruel me l'a ravie;
 Abandonnons ces souvenirs.
 Qu'un beau trépas, digne de moi,
 Dise encore après moi ma gloire,
 Et du courage d'un grand roi
 Redise à jamais la mémoire.

 Abandonnons ces doux souvenirs.
 Il te reste ta fierté.
 Qu'un beau trépas, digne de toi,
 Dise encore après toi ta gloire,
 Et du courage d'un grand roi
 Redise à jamais la mémoire.
