vuò che cada
umiliato un empio cor;

che difese
il suo regno col valor.

By this falchion
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
By this falchion
lightning-garnish'd,
Vile heart tarnish'd,
I have vowed that thou shalt die!

Yet that knave shall be forgiven,
Who hath striven
For his land with valor high.
