Di tale amor, Leonora's aria from Il Trovatore

Di tale amor che dirsi		A love that can
mal può dalla parola,		hardly be put into words,
d' amor che intendo io sola,	a love that only I can understand,
il cor s' inebriò! 		such a love has filled my heart! 
Il mio destino compiersi	My destiny will be fulfilled
non può che a lui dappresso...	only at his side...
S' io non vivrò per esso,	I will live only for him,
per esso io morirò!		if not, I will die for him!
