Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CORO di NINFE e PASTORI
Ahi caso acerbo, ahi fat'empio e crudele.
Ahi stelle ingiuriose, ahi ciel avaro.
Non si fidi uom mortale
Di ben caduco e frale,
Che tosto fugge, e spesso
A gran salita il precipizio è presso.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHORUS of NYMPHS & SHEPHERDS
Ah, bitter blow! Ah, wicked, cruel Fate!
Ah, baleful stars! Ah, avaricious heaven!
Let not mortal man trust
in fleeting and frail happiness,
for soon it flies away, and often
the precipice is close to the highest summit.
