The banks of the Nile—Granite hills covered with palm trees.—On the summit a temple of Isis, half hidden by the foliage.—Night full of stars and the splendor of the moon.
Come to the temple of Isis, on the eve before thy marriage, and pray for the goddess’s favor. To Isis are all hearts open. To her thy inmost thoughts are known.
Yes, and I will pray that Rhadames may give me all his heart, as my heart to him has e’er been wholly given.
Pray thou until dawn. I shall be near thee.
[All enter the temple.—The chorus repeat their hymn.]
