From Puccini: Tosca

I lived for my art, I lived for love
I never did harm to a living soul
With a secret hand
I relieved as many misfortunes as I knew of
Always with true faith
My prayer
Rose to the holy shrines

Always with true faith
I gave flowers to the altar

In the hour of grief
Why, why, o Lord
Why do you reward me thus?
I gave jewels for the Madonna's mantle
And I gave my song to the stars, to heaven
Which smiled with more beauty
In the hour of grief
Why, why, o Lord
Ah, why do you reward me thus?
