Willkommen jetzt, o dunkler Hain

Language: German (Deutsch)

Recitativo: Hanne
 Willkommen jetzt, o dunkler Hain,
 wo der bejahrten Eiche Dach
 den kühlenden Schirm gewährt,
 und wo der schlanken Äspe Laub
 mit leisem Gelispel rauscht.
 Am weichen Moose rieselt da
 in heller Flut der Bach,
 und fröhlich summend irrt
 und wirrt die bunte Sonnenbrut.
 Der Kräuter reinen Balsamduft
 verbreitet Zephyrs Hauch,
 und aus dem nahen Busche 
 tönt des jungen Schäfers Rohr.

Sombre bosquet, tu es agréable maintenant

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Récitatif : Anne
 Sombre bosquet, tu es agréable maintenant,
 Là où le toit du chêne chargé d'ans
 Accorde une protection rafraîchissante,
 Et où le feuillage du tremble élancé
 Murmure avec un doux chuchotement.
 Sur la mousse moelleuse coule
 Le flot clair du ruisseau,
 Et bourdonnant joyeusement vagabonde va
 Et vient le pullulement des insectes multicolores.
 Le parfum pur des plantes
 Est répandu par le souffle du zéphyr,
 Et des buissons proches retentit
 La flûte du jeune berger.
