Sposa son disprezzata
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
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.
