Il Marinajo:
Hark, on the night the clash of falling chains,
The rush of sudden feet and desperate hands
That make or master weapons,
Smite nor spare!
The galley's ours!
'Bout ship and steer for home.

La Sposina:
Here on thy heart where I ne'er hoped to rest
The weight of my brow, and the woe of my breast.
Here on the heart of my love let me lie.
Here in my joy, let me live, let me die!
Here on the heart of my love let me lie.
Here in my joy, let me live, let me live and die!

Il Marinajo:
Come to the heart that ne'er thought to find rest,
In the chain of thy arms, on the wave of thy breast,
The lash and the oar as a dream are gone by,
The lash and the oar as a dream are gone by,
While thus in the clasp of my true love I lie.

La Sposina:Il Marinajo:
Here on thy heart
where I ne'er hoped to rest
Come to the heart
that ne'er thought to find rest
The weight of my brow,
and the woe of my breast.
In the chain of thy arms,
on the wave of thy breast,
Here on the heart of my love let me lie
Here let me live and die!The lash and the oar as a dream are gone by,
Here in my joy let me live,While thus in the clasp of my true love
Let me live, let me live and die!I lie, In the clasp of my love I lie,
Here in my joy,Here in my joy,
Here in my joy,Here in my joy,
Let me live and die!Let me live and die!
