Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Coro
Dopo la notte oscura
più lucido,
più chiaro,
più amabile,
più caro
nel spunta il sol quaggiù.
Tal dopo ria sventura,
figlio d'un bel soffrire,
più stabile gioire
nasce dalla virtù.
Dopo...etc.

FINE

English Libretto or Translation:

Chorus
As after some dark dismal night
a day more bright,
a sky more clear,
with lovely light
the eye does chear;
o`er natures face the sun displays
stronger beams and warmer rays.
So, when sorrows are blown over
joy the son of gallant woe,
does true solid bliss recover,
which does out of virtue grow.
