by Nunziato Porta (flourished c1770-1793)

Dèi pietosi, in tal cimento
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Dèi pietosi, in tal cimento
par che machi il mio valor.
Ah non so, se quel ch’ io sento
sia viltade o sia timor.

Ma si vinca ormai da forte;
no m’ involi alcun la palma.
Ah ch’ io gelo… Manca l’ alma,
agitar mi sento il cor.

Dèi pietosi ! Manca l’ alma,
agitar mi sento il cor.
