Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CORO di NINFE e PASTORI
Vanne Orfeo, felice a pieno,
A goder celeste onore
Là 've hen non mai vien meno,
Là 've mai non fu dolore,
Mentr'altari, incensi e voti
Noi t'offriam lieti e devoti.

Così va chi non s'arretra
Al chiamar di nume eterno,
Così grazia in Ciel impetra
Chi qua giù provo l'Inferno;
E chi semina fra doglie
D'ogni grazia il frutto coglie.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHORUS of NYMPHS & SHEPHERDS
Orpheus' cup of joy is filled,
he is ris'n to realms supernal,
there are pain and sorrow stilled,
there is peace and bliss eternal.
Joyous hearts and altars smoking
offer we, thy grace invoking.

Thus to all of us is given
who obey the Lord Eternal,
he shall taste the joys of Heaven,
who on earth has brav'd th'infernal.
He who sows his seed in sorrow
fruits of grace hall reap tomorrow.
