Del piu sublime soglio, Tito's aria from La Clemenza di Tito

Del piu sublime soglio 
L'unico frutto e questo; 
Tutto e tormento il resto, 
E tutto e servitu. 

Che avrei, se ancor perdessi 
Le sole ore felici, 
Ch'ho nel giovar gli oppressi, 
Nel sollevar gli amici; 
Nel dispensar tesori 
Al merto, e alla virtu?
