Lo vedremo, veglio audace, Carlo's aria from Ernani

Lo vedremo, veglio audace, 
se resistermi potrai, 
se tranquillo sfiderai, 
la vendetta del tuo re. 
Essa rugge sul tuo capo; 
pensa pria che tutto scenda, 
più feroce, più tremenda 
d'una folgore su te. 

Il tuo capo, o il traditore, 
altro scampo, no, non v'è.
