Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Tra l’oscure ombre funeste,
splende al giusto il ciel sereno,
serba ancor nelle tempeste 
la sua pace un fido cor. 
Alme belle, ah sì, godete!
Né alcun fia che turbi audace,
quella gioia e quella pace,
di cui solo è Dio l’autor.

Air (Soprano I)
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Parmi les ombres funestes,
le ciel serein brille encore,
au milieu de la tempête est préservée encore
la paix par le cœur fidèle.
Belles âmes, ah, réjouissez-vous !
Que personne ne trouble avec audace
cette joie et cette paix
dont seul Dieu est l'auteur.
