Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria: Zoroastro
Sorge infausta una procella, che oscurar fa il cielo e mare
splende fausta poi la stella
che ogni cor ne fa goder.

Può talor il forte errare, ma risorto dall'errore,
quel che pria gli diè dolore, causa immenso il suo poter.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria: Zoroastro
Rough tempests arise which obscure heaven and seas.
A brighter star does then impart its rays
and gladdens every heart.

The strong may often err, but when they see their error,
What was once a source of woe, then turns to joy.
