Je t'implore, the King's aria from Hamlet

Je t'implore, o mon frère!
Si tu m'entends, si tu me vois,
apaise la colère
de Celui que juge les rois!
Ah! Vains effots! Espérance insensée!
Ma voix et mes regards vont au ciel,
ma pensée rampe sur la terre!...
Dieu ne m'écoute pas!
Ma pensée rampe sur la terre!
Hélas! Dieu na m'écoute pas! Hélas!...
