Rezitativ ‑ Gleich öffnet sich der Erde...

Language: German (Deutsch)

RAPHAEL:
 Gleich öffnet sich der Erde Schoß 
 Und sie gebiert auf Gottes Wort 
 Geschöpfe jeder Art,
 In vollem Wuchs und ohne Zahl.
 Vor Freude brüllend steht der Lowe da.
 Hier schießt der gelenkige Tiger empor.
 Das zackige Haupt erhebt der schnelle Hirsch. 
 Mit tliegender Mähne springt und wich'rt 
 Voll Mut und Kraft das edle Roß.
 Auf grünen Matten weidet schon 
 Das Rind, in Herden abgeteilt.
 Die Triften deckt, als wie gesät, 
 Das wollenreiche, sanfte Schaf.
 Wie Staub verbreitet sich
 In Schwarm und Wirbel
 Das Heer der Insekten.
 In langen Zügen kriecht
 Am Boden das Gewürm.

Récitatif

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

RAPHAËL:
 Aussitôt s'ouvrit le sein de la terre
 Et à la parole de Dieu elle donna naissance
 À des êtres de toutes sortes,
 En pleine croissance et sans nombre.
 Rugissant de joie le lion se dresse,
 Ici le tigre souple se précipite,
 Le cerf rapide lève sa tête garnie de bois,
 Avec la crinière qui flotte saute et hennit
 Le noble cheval plein de courage et de force.
 Sur les pâturages verts déjà paît
 Le bœuf, divisé en troupeaux.
 Les pacages sont recouverts, comme semés,
 Par le mouton doux couvert de laine.
 Comme de la poussière se répandent
 En essaims et tourbillons
 L'armée des insectes
 En longues colonnes rampe
 Sur le sol le vers.
