Au Fond du temple saint

Zurga
C'était le soir!
Dans l'air par la brise attiédi,
Les brahmines au front inondé de lumière
Appelaient lentement la foule à la prière!

Nadir
Au fond du temple saint
Paré de fleurs et d'or,
Une femme apparaît!

Zurga
Une femme apparaît!

Nadir
Je crois la voir encore!

Zurga
Je crois la voir encore!

Nadir
La foule prosternée
La regarde, étonnée,
Et murmure tout bas :
Voyez, c'est la déesse
Qui dans l'ombre se dresse,
Et vers nous tend les bras!

Zurga
Son voile se soulève!
Ô vision! ô rêve!
La foule est à genoux!

Nadir et Zurga
Oui, c'est elle!
C'est la déesse
Plus charmante et plus belle!
Oui, c'est elle!
C'est la déesse
Qui descend parmi nous!
Son voile se soulève
Et la foule est à genoux!

Nadir
Mais à travers la foule
Elle s'ouvre un passage!

Zurga
Son long voile déjà
Nous cache son visage!

Nadir
Mon regard, hélas!
La cherche en vain!

Zurga
Elle fuit!

Nadir
Elle fuit!
Mais dans mon âme soudain
Quelle étrange ardeur s'allume!

Zurga
Quel feu nouveau me consume!

Nadir
Ta main repousse ma main!

Zurga
Ta main repousse ma main!

Nadir
De nos cœurs l'amour s'empare,
Et nous change en ennemis!

Zurga
Non, que rien ne nous sépare!

Nadir
Non, rien!

Zurga
Que rien ne nous sépare.

Nadir
Non, rien!

Zurga
Jurons de rester amis!

Nadir
Jurons de rester amis!

Zurga
Jurons de rester amis!

Nadir et Zurga
Oh oui, jurons de rester amis!
Oui, c'est elle! C'est la déesse!
En ce jour qui vient nous unir,
Et fidèle à ma promesse,
Comme un frère je veux te chérir!
C'est elle, c'est la déesse
Qui vient en ce jour nous unir!
Oui, partageons le même sort,
Soyons unis jusqu'à la mort!

In the Depths of the Holy Temple

Zurga
It was in the evening!
In the air cooled by a breeze,
The brahmanes with faces flooded with light,
Slowly called the crowd to prayer!

Nadir
At the back of the holy temple,
Decorated with flowers and gold,
A woman appears!

Zurga
A woman appears!

Nadir
I can still see her!

Zurga
I can still see her!

Nadir
The prostrate crowd
Looks at her amazed
And murmurs under its breath :
Look, this is the goddess
Looming up in the shadow
And holding out her arms to us.

Zurga
Her veil parts slightly.
What a vision! What a dream!
The crowd is kneeling.

Nadir and Zurga
Yes, it is she!
It is the goddess,
More charming and more beautiful.
Yes, it is she!
It is the goddess
Who has come down among us.
Her veil has parted
and the crowd is kneeling.

Nadir
But through the crowd
She makes her way.

Zurga
Already her long veil
Hides her face from us.

Nadir
My eyes, alas!
Seek her in vain!

Zurga
She flees!

Nadir
She flees!
But what is this strange flame
Which is suddenly kindled in my soul!

Zurga
What unknown fire is destroying me?

Nadir
Your hand pushes mine away!

Zurga
Your hand pushes mine away!

Nadir
Love takes our hearts by storm
And turns us into enemies!

Zurga
No, let nothing part us!

Nadir
No, nothing!

Zurga
Let nothing part us!

Nadir
No, nothing!

Zurga
Let us swear to remain friends!

Nadir
Let us swear to remain friends!

Zurga
Let us swear to remain friends!

Nadir and Zurga
Oh yes, let us swear to remain friends!
Yes, it is she, the goddess,
Who comes to unite us this day.
And, faithful to my promise,
I wish to cherish you like a brother!
It is she, the goddess,
Who comes to unite us this day!
Yes, let us share the same fate,
Let us be united until death!
