Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CORO
con maggior dolcezza
Ah qual incognito
Affetto flebile,
Dolce a sospendere
Vien l'implacabile
Nostro furor!
 
Aria

ORFEO
Men tiranne, ah! voi sareste
Al mio pianto, al mio lamento,
Se provaste un sol momento
Cosa sia languir d'amor.
 
Coro

English Libretto or Translation:

CHORUS
Ah! What unknown
feeling of pity
sweetly comes
to soften
our implacable rage?

Aria

ORPHEUS
Ah! You would be less harsh
to my weeping and lamenting
if for but a moment you could know
what it is to languish for love.
