The dagger falls to earth; Donato lives! I may expire at his feet. Ye all may take again unto your hearts all those ye loved, all those on whom my cold and jealous hand was laid. (She gives a signal. Regina, clad in white, appears upon the gallery at the left, tottering, supported by the two masked men; she seems dazed. She spies Otbert, and falls into his arms with a loud shriek.) REGINA. O Heaven! (Otbert, Regina and Job embrace one another in a state of excitement bordering on frenzy.) OTBERT. My Regina! father! JOB (raising his eyes to heaven). God be praised! GUANHUMARA (at the back of the stage). 'T is time for me to die! O sepulchre, receive me! (She puts a phial to her lips. The emperor rushes to her side.) THE EMPEROR. What hast thou done? GUANHUMARA. I swore that hence this coffin should not go untenanted. I too go hence. Job, reign upon the Rhine! JOB. Nay, sire, stay! THE EMPEROR. I do bequeath a sovereign to the world. The imperial herald did but now come hither to ' make proclamation that the German princes have chosen Friedrich, my grandson, emperor. A wise and virtuous man, free from all enmities and from past errors. To him I leave the throne, and seek my solitude once more. Farewell! Live, reign and suffer. These are troublous times! Job, 't was my wish, before I die, bowing before the cross, this once supreme and tutelary hand to extend for the last time, as king over my people, and as thy brother over thee. Whatever be his destiny, happy is he, who, when his hour is about to strike, can still bestow a blessing! (All kneel to receive the emperor's blessing.) more
