Possente amor mi chiama, the Duke's aria from Rigoletto

Possente amor mi chiama,	A great love beckons,
volar io deggio a lei:		I must rush to her:
il serto mio darei		I would give my coronet
per consolar quel cor.		to cheer up that sad heart.
Ah! sappia alfin chi l' ama,	Ah! Let her know at last who loves her,
conosca appien chi sono,	she shall know who I am,
apprenda ch' anco in trono	she will see that Love is master
ha degli schiavi Amor.		even over the powerful.
