D'Egitto là sui lidi, Zaccaria's aria from Nabucco

Sperate, o figli!  Iddio
Del suo poter diè segno;
Ei trasse in poter mio
Un prezioso pegno;
Del re nemico prole
Pace apportar ci può.
Freno al timor! v'affidi
D'Iddio l'eterna aita.

D'Egitto là sui lidi
Egli a Mosè diè vita;
Di Gedeone i cento
Invitti Ei rese un dì...
Chi nell'estremo evento
Fidando in Lui perì?
Freno al timor!
Chi nell'estremo
