Arie ‑ Nun scheint in vollem Glanze der...

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Nun scheint in vollem Glanze der Himmel, 
 Nun prangt in ihrem Schmucke die Erde. 
 Die Luft erfüllt das leichte Gefieder, 
 Die Wasser schwellt der Fische Gewimmel, 
 Den Boden drückt der Tiere Last.
 Doch war noch alles nicht vollbracht.
 Dem ganzen fehlte das Geschöpf, 
 Das Gottes Werke dankbar sehn, 
 Des Herren Güte preisen soll.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
