Recitativo: Simon
 Nun regt und bewegt sich alles umher.
 Ein buntes Gewühl bedecket die Flur.
 Dem braunen Schnitter neiget sich
 der Saaten wallende Flut. 
 Die Sense blitzt, da sinkt das Korn;
 doch steht es bald, und aufgehäuft
 in festen Garben wieder da.

Maintenant aux alentours tout bouge
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Récitatif : Simon
 Maintenant aux alentours tout bouge et se met en mouvement ;
 Une foule colorée recouvre la prairie.
 Devant le faucheur hâlé se courbe
 Le flot ondulant du blé.
 La faux lance des éclairs, le blé tombe ;
 Mais bientôt il se dresse, amassé
 En gerbes solides, à nouveau.
