Se il labbro timito, Celia's aria from Lucio Silla

Se il labbro timito			If my timid lips
Scoprir non osa la fiamma ascosa	Dare not disclose the hidden flame,
Per lui ti parlino queste pupille	May these eyes speak in their stead,
Per lui ti svelino tutto il mio cor.	May they instead of my mute lips
						Reveal my whole heart.
