Strider sento la procella, Celia's aria from Lucio Silla

Strider sento la procella	I hear the storm rage,
NĂ© risplende amica stella	And no kindly star shines,
Pure avvolta in tanto orrore	Yet hope and love I cherish
La speranza coll' amore		Despite the great tribulation
Mi sta sempre in mezzo al cor.	Unswervingly in my inmost heart.
