Aria da capo - Allegro
 Canta in prato, ride in monte
 Philomela laeta in fonte,
 vox respondeat exultando.

 Et vox illa sit amoena
 vox laetitiae, nec tua poena
 gaudia turbet deplorando.

Recitative
 Selva [saeva] fulgescit nobis
 digna communi gaudio optata dies.
 Pater beate, gaude
 caelesti gloria tua,
 gaude sereno obsequio.
 Vos mortales, plaudite et exultate,
 et si plaudunt in coelo amoeni cori,
 gaudeat et omnis vivens
 et semper plaudendo sacro honori.

Aria da capo - Allegro
 Avenae rusticate,
 sinceri fervida
 amoris jubila
 docete nos.

 Vos gaudia dicite, [discite]
 timpana et organa,
 si agrestis fistula
 invitat vos.

Alleluia - Allegro
