ORFEO
Dove, ah, dove ten vai,
Unico del mio cor dolce conforto?
Poiché non lunge omai
Del mio lungo cammin si scopr'iI porto?
Perché ti parti e m'abbandoni, ahi, lasso,
Sul periglioso passo?
Qual bene or più m'avanza
Se fuggi tu, dolcissima Speranza?

English Libretto or Translation:

ORPHEUS
Where, ah where art thou going,
my heart's sole sweet comfort,
since now the goal of my long journey
is in sight not far away?
Why dost thou turn and abandon me, alas,
at this perilous stage?
What well?wisher now will help me on
if thou dost desert me, sweetest Hope?
