Welche Labung für die Sinne!
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE ITA
Aria: Hanne
 Welche Labung für die Sinne!
 Welch' Erholung für das Herz!
 Jeden Aderzweig durchströmet,
 und in jeder Nerve lebt
 Erquickendes Gefühl.
 Die Seele wachet auf zum reizenden Genuß',
 und neue Kraft erhebt durch milden Drang die Brust.

Quel réconfort pour l'esprit !
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Air : Anne
 Quel réconfort pour l'esprit !
 Quel délassement pour le cœur !
 Dans chaque veine coule
 Et dans chaque nerf frémit
 Un sentiment rafraîchissant.
 L'âme s'éveille pour ce charme excitant,
 Et une nouvelle force soulève la poitrine avec un doux désir.
