3. Wie, schönste Göttin? wie?

  • Endymion (Tenore)
  • Continuo

German Text by Salomon Franck

Wie? schönste Göttin? wie?
Kennst du nicht mehr dein vormals halbes Leben?
Hast du nicht dem Endymion
In seiner sanften Ruh
So manchen Zuckerkuß gegeben?
Bist du denn, Schönste, nu
Von Liebesbanden frei?
Und folgest nur der Jägerei?

English Translation

What? loveliest goddess? what?
You no longer know him who was once half your life?
Have you not given to Endymion
in his gentle rest
so many sweet kisses?
Are you then, o beauty, now
released from the bonds of love?
And you pursue only the chase?
