Il va venir!, Rachel's aria from La Juive

Il va venir!
et d'effroi je me sens frémir.
Mon ame, hélas, est oppressée.
Mon coeur bat, mais non de plaisir...
Et cepedant, il va venir!

La nuit et le silence,
l'orage qui s'avance
augmentent ma terreur.
L'effroi, la défiance
s'emparent de mon coeur!

Chaque pas me fait tressaillir!
J'ai pu tromper les yeux d'un père,
mais mon pas ceux d'un Dieu sévere.
Oui, je le dois, oui je veux fuir.
Et cepedant , il va venir!
