6. Aria (tenor) [sung text checked 1 time]

A te, fra tanti affanni, 
pietà cercai, Signore, 
che vedi il mio bel core, 
che mi conosci almen. 
Udisti i voti miei, 
e già godea quest’alma, 
per te l’usata calma 
delle tempeste in sen.

7. Coro [sung text checked 1 time]

Se vuoi, puniscimi,
ma pria, Signore,
lascia che almeno,  
che sfoghi, che si moderi  
il tuo sdegno, il tuo furore.
Vedi la mia pallida guancia inferma,
Signore, deh sanami,
deh porgimi soccorso, aita.
Signor, tu puoi.

8. Aria (soprano I) [sung text checked 1 time]

Tra l’oscure ombre funeste,
splende al giusto il ciel sereno,
serba ancor nelle tempeste 
la sua pace un fido cor. 
Alme belle, ah sì, godete!
Né alcun fia che turbi audace,
quella gioia e quella pace,
di cui solo è Dio l’autor.
