Schweig, schweig, damit dich niemand warnt!, Caspar's aria from Der Freischütz

Schweig, schweig, damit dich niemand warnt! 
Schweige, damit dich niemand warnt! 
Der Hölle Netz hat dich umgarnt! 
Nichts kann vom tiefen Fall dich retten, 
Nichts kann dich retten vom tiefen Fall! 
Umgebt ihn, ihr Geister, mit Dunkel beschwingt! 
Schon trägt er knirschend eure Ketten! 
Triumph, Triumph, Triumph, die Rache gelingt!
