by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

In te spero, o sposo amato
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
In te spero, o sposo amato,
Fido a te la sorte mia.
E per te, qualunque sia,
Sempre cara a me sarà.

Pur che a me nel morir mio
Il piacer non sia negato
Di vantar che tua son io,
Il morir mi piacerà.
