by Apostolo Zeno (1669 - 1750)

Ti sento, amor di padre
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Ti sento, amor di padre,  
che, estinto ogni altro affetto,
divampi nel mio petto,
e tutto il vuoi per te.
Son suddito, e fedele,
ma a costo d'una figlia,
il debito è crudele
sacrilega la fé.
