La pietade in suo favore, Enrico's cabaletta from Lucia di Lammermoor

La pietade in suo favore     	The compassion for her
miti sensi invan ti detta... 	inspires to you an unuseful pity.... 
Se mi parli di vendetta      	I hear your words only if
sol intenderti potrò. -      	you speak to me of revege. - 
Siagurati!... Il mio furore  	Oh, curses! fury
già su voi tremendo rugge... 	will descend upon you roaring...
L'empia fiamma che vi strugge	The impious flame that burns within you
io col sangue spegnerò !     	I shall extinguish with blood!
