From the recording Samson at Home

<p>Samson is not ready to forgive her, reflecting instead on his sad fate with "such a mate." &nbsp;Andr&eacute; plays Samson's vocal line. &nbsp;</p>

Lyrics

<p>Your charms to ruin led the way,<br />My sense deprav&rsquo;d, my strength enslav&rsquo;d;&nbsp;<br />As I did love, you did betray.<br />How great the curse! How hard my fate&nbsp;<br />To pass life&rsquo;s sea with such a mate!&nbsp;</p>
