Arie: Wo ist doch ein Mund zu finden
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Wo ist doch ein Mund zu finden,
der mein Seelenheil ausspricht.
Wenn ich gleich bis in die Tiefe
und bis an die Sterne liefe,
treff ich doch kein Wohlsein an,
das dem meine gleichen kann.
Engel selber wissen nicht
mein Vergnügen zu ergründen.

Aria: Where can one find a mouth
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Where can one find a mouth
to tell of the salvation of my soul.
Were I to rush into the depths
and up to the stars,
I would not encounter any wellbeing
That could match mine.
Angels themselves do not know
How to fathom my delight.
