Arie mit Chor ‑ Nun schwanden vor dem...

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Nun schwanden vor dem heiligen Strahle 
 Des schwarzen Dunkels gräuliche Schatten: 
 Der erste Tag entstand.
 Verwirrung weicht, und Ordnung keimt empor. 
 Erstarrt entfüeht der Höllengeister Schar 
 In des Abgrunds Tiefen hinab
 Zur ewigen Nacht.

 Verzweiflung, Wut und Schrecken 
 Begleiten ihren Sturz,
 Und eine neue Welt
 Entspringt auf Gottes Wort.
