Sample text

My people fear his anger; but I alone dare to face him, and keep him at my feet! Amour! Viens aider ma faiblesse... Love! Help me in my weakness... Contre l’amour sa force est vaine; et lui, le fort parmi les forts, lui qui d’un peuple rompt la chaîne succombera sous mes efforts! His strength is no match against love; he may be the strongest of the strong; he may have broken his people’s chains, but he shall surrender to me! Distant flashes of lightning signal the arrival of the High Priest of Dagon.

Let’s march by his side for our deliverance! Jéhovah leads us and delivers us from the Philistines! Abimelech, the Satrap of Gaza, enters with several Philistine soldiers. Abimelech: Qui donc élève ici la voix? Encor ce vil troupeau d’esclaves, osant toujours braver nos lois et voulant briser leurs entraves! Abimelech: Who raises his voice here? These vile slaves scorn their masters, struggling in vain to break our laws and their shackles! Cachez vos soupirs et vos pleurs! Qui lassent notre pateince; invoquez plutôt la clémence de ceux qui furent vos vainqueurs!

Viens! Delilah: I will face the storm with you! Tell me! Samson: Non! Samson: No! Dalila: Viens! Delilah: Tell me! Samson: Laisse-moi! Samson: Leave me! Dalila: Qu’importe la foudre! Delilah: Defy his wrath! Samson: Je ne puis m’y résoudre c’est la voix de mon Dieu! Samson: That thunder is the voice of my God! Dalila: Lâche! Cœur sans amour! Je te méprise! Adieu! Delilah: Coward! Heartless man! I despise you! Farewell! The storm erupts in all its fury. As Delilah leaves Samson, he raises his arms to heaven, calling upon his God for help.
