In braccio alle dovizie, Monforte's aria from I Vespri Siciliani

In braccio alle dovizie,
nel seno degli onor,
un vuoto immenso,
orribile regnava nel mio cor!
D'un avvenir beato
splendel il sorriso a me,
se viver mi fia dato, figlio,
viver vicino a te!
L'odio invano a me lo toglie,
vincerà quel fero cor,
sì, nel fulgor di queste soglie,
cor paterno, immenso amor,
sì, lo vinca amore del genitor, sì!
