JUDITH.

[ocr errors]

Fire, sword and ruin, chains and death
In thund'ring voice his threats bespeak;
And blafted by the cruel breath
Paleness bespread Bethulia's cheek:

But lo! at once his daring pride
Is crush'd by unexpected fate;
The tempest roars, the clouds subside ;
So disappears his baffled hate.

CHORUS, &c.

JUDITH.
Dispers’d, abandon'd, and forlorn,
Their flight the fell Barbarians speed;
On terror's wing Affyria's borne,
And wild dismay appals the Mede.

Nor were they giants, us'd t'assail
The stars, who deal the fatal blow;
A Woman's arm defenceless, frail,

Alone hath laid the tyrant low.

CHORUS, &c.

IN prato, in forefta;

,
Sia l'alba, o la sera,
Se dorme talór,
Non turba, non desta
La tromba guerriera
Dal fonno il pastor.

Lc madri sicure

D' infidie, e perigli
Se i teneri figli
Si stringono al petto,
Impulso è d'affetto,
Non piu' di timor.

IF in the wood, or on the lawn,

At close of eve, or morning dawn,
The shepherd swain repose;
He springs not from his rustic bed
Rous’d by the trumpet's clangor dread,
And fear of ambush'd foes.

Free from the thought that fancy feeds
Of reckless

rage,

and murd'rous deeds,
And swift destroying fires,
If to the mother's melting breast
With tender force her babe be prest,
No fear the clasp inspires.
