Dolce legame d'amore, tu puoi sconfiggere i miei nemici e contenere la loro furia. Wohl denen, die im Sarge liegen Und auf den Schall der Engel hofften! Jesu, mache mir doch nur, Wie Stephano, den Himmel offen! Mein Herz ist schon bereit, Zu dir hinaufzusteigen. Du magst mir Gruft und Grab Und meinen Jesum zeigen. Beati coloro che riposano nella tomba attendendo la chiamata degli angeli!

To Sara's gradual dismay, the Queen reveals her love for Robert L'amor suo mi fe' beata. Cecil enters and announces that Parliament is waiting for an answer from the Queen regarding the charges against Robert, since it considers her too lenient towards him, but she refuses to sign the death warrant proposed by the Royal Council.
Robert enters and, in a conversation overheard by the increasingly distraught Sara, Elizabeth declares her love for him. Now alone together, Elizabeth promises Robert that the ring she once gave him will always be the pledge of his safety should he ever return it to her. The dream of bygone happy days is shattered by an inappropriate comment by Robert, who assumes that Elizabeth knows the secret of his love for Sara.

Robert makes plans to escape.
The Queen approaches Cecil to find out what has been decided. Cecil declares that the sentence is death. The Queen, asking Raleigh why the whole process took so long, learns that Robert had a shawl in his possession which he resisted giving over. It is handed to her.
Nottingham enters and pleads for Robert's life Non venni mai si mesto , insisting that he is innocent, but the Queen continues to describe how she knows that Robert has been unfaithful and, when he is brought in, confronts him, showing him the scarf.
