Edition notes: A reformatting of #14895 which, because of the range of the alto part, is really more SSTB than SATB. This version transposed a major 3rd down. Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score. MusicXML source file is in compressed .mxl format. Revised files uploaded 02/02/19.

Love shooting among many,
by chance he hit not any
because the shaft rebounded,
and Love himself was wounded.
When Psyche saw the dart had missed her,
she smiled and said that all the gods had blessed her.
