Italian text

Eustazio

Signor, strano ardimento!
Sui vortici dell’onde,
All’aure di lusinghe,
Fidar la propria gloria!
 

Goffredo

Ciò fu indegna vittoria
Del barbaro Acheronte;
Ma di tal duolo a fronte
Non paventi il mio core.
La figlia, oh dio! È smarrita!
L’eroe sen fugge a volo!
Speme, virtù, non mi lasciate solo!
