Tu la mia stella sei, Cleopatra's aria from Giulio Cesare

Vegli pur il germano
alla propria salvezza:
che giĆ  gli mossi 
di Cesare la spada,
di Sesto e Cornelia il giusto sdegno;
senza un certo periglio
non creda aver solo d'Egitto il regno.

Tu la mia stella sei,
amabile speranza,
e porgi ai desir' miei
un grato e bel piacer.
Qual sia di questo core
la stabile costanza,
e quanto possa amore,
s'ha in breve da veder.
