Arie ‑ Auf starkem Fittiche

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Auf starkem Fittiche 
 Schwinget sich der Adler stolz 
 Und teilet die Luft
 Im schnellesten Fluge 
 Zur Sonne hin.
 Den Morgen grüßt
 Der Lerche frohes Lied, 
 Und Liebe girrt
 Das zarte Taubenpaar.
 Aus jedem Busch und Hain erschallt 
 Der Nachtigallen süße Kehle.
 Noch drückte Gram nicht ihre Brust, 
 Noch war zur Klage nicht gestimmt 
 Ihr reizender Gesang.
