Arie ‑ Nun beut die Flur das frische Grün 
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
 Nun beut die Flur das frische Grün 
 Dem Auge zur Ergötzung dar.
 Den anmutsvollen Blick
 Erhöht der Blumen sanfter Schmuck.
 Hier duften Kräuter Balsam aus, 
 Hier sproßt den Wunden Heil.
 Die Zweige krümmt der goldnen Früchte Last; 
 Hier wölbt der Hain zum kühlen Schirme sich, 
 Den steilen Berg bekrönt ein dichter Wald.

Aria ‑ Fresh greenery has now appeared on the meadow
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Fresh greenery has now appeared on the meadows
Offering delight to the eyes.
The lovely view is
Lifted higher by the gentle decoration of the flowers.
Herbs smell of balm here;
The cures for wounds are sprouting here.
The branches bend down under the weight of golden fruit;
The group of trees forms a vault here and offers cool protection,
The steep mountain crowns a thick forest.
