Svegliatevi nel core, Sesto's aria from Giulio Cesare

Vani sono i lamenti;
รจ tempo, o Sesto, ormai
di vendicar il padre;
si svegli alla vendetta
l'anima neghittosa,
che offesa da un tiranno invan riposa.

Svegliatevi nel core,
furie d'un alma offesa,
a far d'un traditor
aspra vendetta!
L'ombra del genitore
accorre a mia difesa,
e dice: a te il rigor,
Figlio si aspetta.
