The Magic Flute is a famous opera by Mozart. Its lyrics can be found here.

It seems to be completely secular to me. It includes lyrics that include characters talking to pagan gods, but Mozart himself did not believe in these gods; it is part of a characterization.

O Isis und Osiris,  schenket            O Isis and Osiris, give 
der Weisheit Geist dem neuen Paar!      The spirit of wisdom to the new pair!

    Reminds me that there used to be Jewish books printed with re-used gate pages that featured Greek and Roman gods. Sometimes they tried to hide this by writing David and Shlomo above them, or something like that.
