Behold! Auspicious flashes rise -- Lucky omens bless our rites -- Ah, me! -- Why dost thou thus untimely grieve -- Avert these omens -- Cease, cease your vows -- Oh, Athamas ; what torture hast thou borne! -- You've undone me -- Ah, wretched prince -- See, see! -- Endless pleasure -- Iris, impatient of thy stay -- Look, where Cithaeron proudly stands -- Hence, Iris, hence away! -- Come, Zephyrs, come -- Let me not another moment -- Lay your doubts -- With fond desiring -- How engaging -- Too well I read her meaning -- Now love -- By my command -- See, she appears -- Dear sister, how was your journey hither? -- Prepare then, ye immortal choir! -- Bless the glad earth -- Somnus, awake! -- Leave me, loathsome light! -- More sweet is that name -- Obey my will -- My racking thoughts -- Thus shap'd like Ino -- O ecstasy of happiness! -- Conjure him by his oath -- Thus let my thanks be pay'd -- Come to my arms -- I ever am granting -- Ah, take heed what you press! -- No, no, I'll take no less -- Ah, whither is she gone! -- Above measure is the pleasure -- Ah, me! too late I now repent -- Of my ill-boding dream -- See from above the bellying clouds descend -- Happy, happy shall we be
