Was klingen denn die Hörner

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Was klingen denn die Hörner
 Im Morgendämmerschein,
 Was bringen sie ein Ständchen
 Vor ihrem Kämmerlein?
 Hochzeit wird gefeiert!
 Wörtlein, ach so süß,
 Schlüsslein zu dem trauten
 Hochzeit wird gefeiert!
 Röslein, auf, erwach'!
 Fei're froh noch deinen
 Letzten Mädchentag!

 Die Kirchenglocken klingen,
 Und vor des Heilands Bild
 Hat sich aus ihrem Traume
 Die Wahrheit schön enthüllt.

 Den Bund der treuen Herzen
 Hat Priestermund geweiht,
 Den Schwur der treuen Liebe
 Schrieb ein die Ewigkeit.

Perché risuonano i corni

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

 Perché risuonano i corni
 al primo chiarore del giorno,
 perché portano una serenata,
 davanti alla cameretta di lei?
 Si celebra un matrimonio!
 Quale dolce parola,
 è la chiave dell'intimo paradiso
 dell'amore coniugale!
 Si celebra un matrimonio!
 Svegliati piccola rosa!
 E gioiosamente festeggia
 l'ultimo giorno di fanciulla!

 Risuonano le campane,
 E davanti all'immagine del Salvatore
 il più bel sogno di lei
 diventa realtà.
Coro di fanciulle:
 L'unione di due cuori fedeli
 è stata consacrata dal prete,
 la promessa di amore fedele
 è stata scritta per sempre.
