Ah se il crudel periglio, Giunia's aria from Lucio Silla

Ah se il crudel periglio	Ah when the cruel peril
Del caro bel rammento		Of my beloved I recall
Tutto mi fa spavento		Horror fills my being,
Tutto gelar mi fa.		I grow chill with fear.

Se per sì cara vita		(Should friendship not keep guard
Non veglia l'amistà		Over his precious life,)
Da chi sperare aita		From whom can aid be sought
Da chi sperar pietà?		From whom compassion?
