Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Unulfo
Ah signor, ti confesso
ch'io son fuor di me stesso:
spera conforto! E intanto
lascia, ch'io vada così mesto,
e solo a procurar conforto al tuo gran duolo.

Aria di Unulfo
Sono i colpi della sorte
per un alma invitta e forte
aspri, si, ma non mortali.
Ma se poi gli avventa amore,
quanto è più nobile il core,
più le piaghe son fatali.
Sono i colpi ...etc.
(parte)

English Libretto or Translation:

Unulfo
My lord, I must confess, I’m at a loss,
I’m not myself, an know not what to think.
Hope still the best, and lay aside despair,
while thus dejected and alone I go
to seek for comfort, and appease your woe.
Great and cruel are the blows,
fate does to the brave oppose,
yet not mortal, though they’re great,
to brave souls that face their fate.
But when Cupid throws his darts,

he both wise and brave confounds,
when he strikes the noblest hearts
then he deals the deadliest wounds.
Great etc.
