Ah! fu giusto il mio sospetto, Miller's aria from Luisa Miller

Ah! fu giusto il mio sospetto!
Ira e duol m'invade il petto!
D'ogni bene il ben più santo,
senza macchia io vo'l'onor.
D'una figlia il don soltanto,
ciel, mi festi, e pago io son...
Ma la figlia, ma il tuo dono
serba intatto al genitor.
