Arie ‑ Mit Würd' und Hoheit angetan

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Mit Würd' und Hoheit angetan, 
 Mit Schönheit, Stärk' und Mut begabt, 
 Gen Himmel aufgerichtet steht der Mensch, 
 Ein Mann und König der Natur.
 Die breit gewölbt' erhabne Stirn 
 Verkünd't der Weisheit tiefen Sinn, 
 Und aus dem hellen Blicke strahlt 
 Der Geist, des Schöpfers Hauch und Ebenbild.
 An seinen Busen schmieget sich 
 Für ihn, aus ihm geformt, 
 Die Gattin, hold und anmutsvoll. 
 In froher Unschuld lächelt sie, 
 Des Frühlings reizend Bild, 
 Ihm Liebe, Glück und Wonne zu.
