Mich kann die süße Ruhe laben,
Sweet peace can refresh me,
Sopran
Soprano
Ich kann hier mein Vergnügen haben,
I can have contentment here,
Beide
Both
Wir beide stehn hier höchst beglückt.
Both of us are most highly delighted here.

Denn unsre fette Saaten lachen
For our rich farms smile
Und können viel Vergnügen machen,
And enjoy much pleasure,
Weil sie kein Feind und Wetter drückt.
Since no enemy or storm threatens.
Sopran
Soprano
Wo solche holde Stunden kommen,
Wherever such gracious hours pass,
Da hat das Glücke zugenommen,
Happiness is possessed,
Das uns der heitre Himmel schickt.
Which a cheerful heaven sends to us.
