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.

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

 Sur des ailes puissantes
 L'aigle fier s'élance
 Et fend l'air
 Dans un vol très rapide
 Vers le soleil.
 Le matin est salué
 Par le chant joyeux de l'alouette,
 Et l'amour est roucoulé
 Par le tendre couple de colombes.
 De chaque buisson et bosquet résonne
 Le doux gosier du rossignol.
 Aucun chagrin n'oppressait encore sa poitrine
 À la plainte n'était pas encore accordé
 Son chant charmant.
