OBERTURA

CORO

ARIA DE JEPHTA
Waft her, angels, thro' the skies
Waft her, angels, thro' the skies,
far above yon azure plain.

Glorious there, like you, to rise
There, like you, for ever reign.

ARIA DE IPHIS
Farewell!
Farewell,
ye limpid springs and floods,
ye flow'ry meads and mazy woods.
thou busy world,
where reign short hours of joy
and years of pain.

Brighter scenes I seek above,
in the realms of peace and love.
