Solo un pianto, Neris's aria from Medea

Solo un pianto con te versare;
Ogni lutto, ogni duol divider vo' con te!
Sì, sì!
Fedel mi trovò la sciagura,
In morte a te fedel sarò!
Fin che vivrò.
Principessa cara e infelice,
Chi potria rifiutare
Il pianto al tuo destin?
Infelice, infelice!
Ben fu la sorte a te crudele!
Vicina a te ognor sarò!
Io piangerò; con te sarò, ti seguirò fedel!
