O lebbra, sozzura del mondo, Edgar's aria from Edgar

O lebbra, sozzura del mondo
O fronte di bronzo e di fango
Tortura e gingillo giocondo
Va fuggi, o t'infrango!
Maledizione a voi!
Redento io son!
Io ritorno alla vita!
O gloria, o voluttà,
Bieche illusion,
Addio per sempre,
Per sempre addio!
Io ritorno alla vita!
