This is a complementary piece to the Hermit's Lament. The "exodus" means leaving the hermit status (leaving his confinement). Which I haven't yet, but this song implies otherwise. Anyhow, a world full of life and wonder has been revealed to the Hermit in his absence thereof being there and this song of wonderment brings to mind that revealing of the world.
What I did, D minor to F major. Piano right hand, oboe, Piano left hand, Cello. A few minor changes to the melody but overall the piece parallels to the lament but in a happier tone. Therefore a complimentary piece.
