Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

PASTORE Il
Ma se il nostro gioir dal ciel deriva,
Com'è dal ciel ciò che qua giù n'incontra,
Giusto e ben che devoti
Gli offriam incensi e voti:
Dunque al tempio ciascun rivolga i passi,
A pregar lui nella cui destra è il mondo,
Che lungamente il nostro ben conservi.

English Libretto or Translation:

SECOND SHEPHERD
But if our joy derives from heaven,
as everything we encounter down here is from heaven,
it is surely meet that we should devoutly
offer up incense and prayers:
therefore let each turn his steps to the temple,
to pray to him who holds the world in his right hand,
that he may long preserve our well?being.
