"as/and time sets all things right"
This is either the title or the refrain in a song in a work by Haendel which I should really like to identify.
A friend suggested it might come from 'The victory of Time and Enlightenment', but on running through the libretto, I found no similar verse.
Can anyone help to identify the song and the work?
Many thanks!
Diana

This seems to fit:
Quote:
Pleasure submits to pain,
As day gives way to night,
And sorrow smiles again,
As Time sets all things right.
~ The Triumph of Time and Truth [Act Two], Georg Friedrich Händel (1757)
