Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ORFEO
Scorto da te, mio Nume
Speranza, unico bene
Degli afflitti mortali, omai son giunto
A questi mesti e tenebrosi regni
Ove raggio di sol giammai non giunse.
Tu, mia compagna e duce,
In così strane e sconosciute vie
Reggesti il passo debole e tremante,
Ond'oggi ancora spero
Di riveder quelle beate luci
Che sol'a gl'occhi miei portan il giorno.

English Libretto or Translation:

ORPHEUS
Guided by thee, O goddess
of Hope, thou only solace
of afflicted mortals, I have at last
reached these gloomy and sombre realms
where no ray of sunshine ever penetrated.
Thou, my companion and guide,
hast led my feeble and faltering steps
along such strange and unknown paths
where I still hope today
to see once more those blessed orbs
which alone bring daylight to my eyes.
