Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CORO di NINFE e PASTORI
Vieni, Imeneo, deh, vieni,
E la tua face ardente
Sia quasi un sol nascente
Ch'apporti a questi amanti i dì sereni
E lunge omai disgombre
Degli affanni e del duol gli orrori e I'ombre.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHORUS of NYMPHS & SHEPHERDS
Come, Hymen, ah come,
and let your fiery torch
be like a rising sun
to bring these lovers peaceful days
and henceforth banish afar
the horrors and shadows of anguish and grief.
