Niun mi tema, Otello's aria from Otello

Niun mi tema 
s'anco armato mi vede. Ecco la fine 
del mio camin. . .Oh! Gloria! Otello fu.
E tu. . .come sei pallida! e stanca, e muta, e bella, 
pia creatura nata sotto maligna stella. 
Fredda come la casta tua vita. . . 
e in cielo assorta. 
Desdemona! Desdemona!. . .
Ah. . .morta! morta! morta!. . .

Ho un'arma ancor!

Pria d'ucciderti. . .sposa. . .ti baciai. 
Or morendo. . .nell'ombra. . . 
in cui mi giacio. . . 
Un bacio. . .un bacio ancora. . .ah!. . .un altro bacio. . .
