Al mio ben mi veggio avanti, Ascanio's aria from Ascanio in Alba

Al mio ben mi veggio avanti,
del suo cor sento la pena,
e la legge ancor mi frena.
Ah! si rompa il crudo laccio
abbastanza il cor soffrì.
Se pietà dell'alme amanti,
bella Diva, il sen ti move
non voler fra tante prove
agitarle ognor così.
