ELVIRA
Vien, diletto, è in ciel la luna!
Tutto tace intorno, intorno;
Finchè spunti in ciel il giorno, vien...
Ah, vien, ti posa sul mio cor!
Deh! t'affretta, o Arturo mio,
Riedi, o caro, alla tua Elvira;
Essa piange e ti sospira,
Vien, o caro, all'amore.

RICCARDO, GIORGIO
Possa tu, bell'infelice,
Mercè aver di tanto affetto,
Possa un giorno nel diletto
Obbliare il suo dolor, sì.

ELVIRA
Come, beloved, the moon is in the sky,
all is quiet around us: until day breaks in the 
heavens, come,
come, rest yourself upon my heart!
Ah, hurry, oh my Arturo, come back, my dear,
to your Elvira. She weeps and sighs for you. 
Come, my dear, to my loving.

RICCARDO, GIORGIO
Might you, fair, unhappy one,
be pitied for all your affection.
Might one day in delight
you be able to forget your grief, yes!
