M’appari tutt’amor
Music by Friedrich von Flotow

Italian Lyrics by [ ? ]

English Translation by Rogelio Aguilar (aguilarogelio@hotmail.com)

M’appari tutt’amor;
She appeared to me, full of love,
il mio sguardo l’incontró
my eyes caught sight of her;
bella si che il mio cor
so beautiful that my heart
ansioso a lei voló;
flew to her with longing;

mi feri, mi rapi
was wounded and inflamed
quell’angelica belta
by her angelic beauty
sculta in cor dall’amor,
which love has engraved in my heart,
cancellarsi non potra,
and which cannot be erased,
il pesier di poter
and the mere thought
palpitar con lei d’amor;
of her responding to my passion
puó soprir ji martir
is able to appease the suffering
che m’affanna e strazia il cor!
which distresses me and breaks my heart!

Marta. Marta, tu sparisti
Martha, Martha, you have vanished,
e ji mio cor con tuo ne andó!
and my heart went with you!
Tu la pace mi rapisti,
You have stolen my peace of mind,
di dolor jo moriró ah!
I shall die of grief,
di dolor morró, al, morró! ah!
I shall die, shall die of grief!

M’appari tutt’amor Phrasing as sung by Jussi Bjorling
