Now Heaven in Fullest Glory Shown (from The Creation)

performance note: the recitative will be sung in English and the aria in German

How the heavens shine in all their glory, now the Earth is splendidly adorned.
The air is filled with fluttering plumage, the seas are swollen by the fishy host,

That being was still lacking from the whole
who could look upon God’s work with gratitude and praise the goodness of the Lord.
