Andrea Bocelli – Ah, La Paterna Mano lyrics

(Giuseppe Verdi - macbeth)

O figli, o figlio miei!
Da quel tiranno tutti uccisi voi foste,
E insiem con voi la madre
Ah, fra gli artigli di quel tigre
Io lasciai la madre e I figli?

Ah, la paterna mano non vi fu scudo,
O cari,
Dai perfidi sicari che a morte
Vi ferîare!
E me fuggiasco, occulto voi
Chiamavate invano
Coll'ultimo singulto, coll'ultio respir.
Ah! Trammi al tiranno in faccia,
Signore, e s'ei mi sfugge
Possa a colui le braccia del tuo
