Sempre all'alba ed alla sera, Giovanna's aria from Giovanna d'Arco

Sempre all'alba ed alla sera
Quivi innalzo a te preghiera;
Qui la notte mi riposo,
E te sogna il mio pensier.
Sempre a me, che indegna sono
Apri allora il cor pietoso...
Oh se un di m'avessi 
Il dono d'una spada e d'un cimier!
Ma...le stanche pupille
Il sonno vince Regina,
Il baldo voto perdona...e benedicimi.
